A factor associated with the ingestion of food is shown to produce a short-latency antidiuresis. Animals consuming large quantities of a highly palatable solution during a period of food deprivation exhibit an antidiuresis immediately following the initiation of eating. The rapidity of the response raises the possibility of a signaling factor separate from postingestional influences.
