Acceleration of functional recovery following lateral hypothalamic damage by means of electrical stimulation in the lesioned areas

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Mechanical lesions produced by placing chronic macroelectrodes in the lateral hypothalamus resulted in 6 days of aphagia. However, if the hypothalamus was electrically stimulated for 1 hr a day, through the same electrodes, feeding behavior was recovered in just 2 days. © 1974.
