Abstract

The opportunity to engage in feeding, drinking, and gnawing behavior facilitated by localized hypothalamic stimulation can delay the onset of the aversive effects of the stimulation and may completely suppress them. This suggests that the aversive effects of the stimulation are due to the excessive of the stimulation are due to the exessive arousal of a drive.
