Food-deprived rats injected with B-HT 920, an azepine agonist of dopamine D2 receptors, were observed for thier feeding behaviour using a novel a novel experimental model, X-maze test. Our sydy shows that the new procedure, though rapid, provides an indication of the emotional state and feeding of animals, and that B-HT 920 increses feeding behaviour in rats, it is very similar to elicited by diazepam.
