Abstract

The effect of intracerebroventricular injection of corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) on various behaviors in chicks was determined at 15-min intervals over a 30-min period. Food intake of chicks was significantly decreased, and pecking rhythm was significantly delayed by CRF during the first 15-min post-injection. The similar tendencies were observed in the second 15-min post-injection, but not significantly different. Stepping, as an indicator of locomotion, was not different at 15-min post-injection, but was increased by CRF, thereafter. These results suggest that CRF acts within the central nervous system to decrease food intake and increase locomotion in the chick.
