Metabolic effects of chronic sleep restriction in rats.

Vetrivelan R, Fuller PM, Yokota S, Lu J, Saper CB (2012) Metabolic effects of chronic sleep restriction in rats. Sleep 35(11):1511-1520. doi: 10.5665/sleep.2200

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.
