Satiation of Alcohol Intake

This chapter reviews recent work that attempts to apply the analysis of satiation for food to the satiation of alcohol intake. Experiments and those of others reviewed here demonstrate reliable inhibitory effects of CCK, BN, and naloxone on the intake of alcohol. The identification of excitatory and satiating effects of these peptides suggests an integrative neuropeptide control system for the regulation of alcohol intake, preference, and blood levels. Revealing apparently common peptide mechanisms, the application has been successful so far.

Keywords: satiation; alcohol intake; peptides; integrative neuropeptide control
