Summary: In order to investigate whether there is a correlation between sleep and weight the authors administered 200 nl of a 0.1% solution of orexin-SAP (Cat. #IT-20) to the ventrolateral preoptic area of rats. Although the lesioned animals slept less than the controls, weight gain was slower than controls.
