The hamster as a model for human ingestive behavior

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Hamsters are one of the less common rodent models used for the study of ingestive behavior. These animals can be a valuable tool for investigating certain aspects of human behavior and metabolism that cannot be replicated in rats and mice. This chapter will focus on two of those aspects: (i) the appetitive behaviors of food foraging and hoarding and (ii) stress-induced weight gain.
