Effects of food deprivation on hunger motivation in golden hamsters (Mesocricetus auratus)



Effects of food deprivation on hunger motivation in golden hamsters (Mesocricetus auratus)



Journal of Comparative Psychology 101(2): 183-189



Hamsters deprived of food did not overeat relative to control hamsters during the first hour or the first 3 h after food deprivation. Hamsters deprived of food for 18 h ate food at a significantly faster rate than hamsters not deprived of food did. However, the speed of eating of hamsters deprived of food for 3 h did not differ from that of either of the other groups.
