The latency of feeding in the satiated rat was markedly shortened after intraperitoneal injection of chloralose. Feeding generally began before the onset of drinking or sedation. The optimum dose to facilitate food intake appeared to be lower at night than by day. Chloralose has a primary appetite-inducing effect which is much more powerful than that of 2-deoxyglucose.
