Abstract

Corticotrophin releasing factor (CRF) decreases food intake after starvation and during the nocturnal feeding phase in rats. This decrease appears to be associated with CRF producing a marked increase in grooming. The effects of CRF on food intake and grooming are independent of its effects on the pituatary. CRF is a putative mediator of stress-induced anorexias.
