Effects of CB1 cannabinoid receptor activation in the nucleus accumbens shell on feeding behavior. Acta Colombiana de Psicología, 17(2): pp. 61-68. Obesity and its related pathologies are well- known health hazards. Although obesity and overweight have multifactorial causes, overeating is common in both of these conditions. According to animal models, endocannabinoids and their receptors in the brain play a key role in the genesis and development of obesity. It has been proposed that the cannabinoid receptors CB1 (RCB1) expressed in the nucleus accumbens shell (NAC) are involved in the increase of the hedonic properties of food. To test this hypothesis, this study aimed to assess the effects of activating the NACs RCB1 on standard food intake during the light phase of the light-dark cycle. The effects of activating the RCB1 with CP 55,940 and WIN 55-212-2 (0.125, 0.25 and 0.5 nmol) in the NACS on feeding behavior and the behavioral satiety sequence of rats were assessed. It was found that both agonists increased food intake and delayed expression of satiety during the light phase. These results suggest that cannabinoid agonists encourage food intake when motivation is low and palatability is normal. Key words: Cannabinoids, food, nucleus accumbens shell, behavioral satiety sequence. La obesidad y sus patologías relacionadas son riesgos de salud muy conocidos. Aunque la obesidad y el sobrepeso tienen causas multifactoriales, la sobreingesta de alimento es frecuente en estas condiciones. De acuerdo con modelos animales, los endocanabinoides y sus receptores en el cerebro juegan un papel clave en la génesis y desarrollo de la obesidad. Se ha propuesto que los receptores a canabinoides CB1 (RCB1) expresados en el núcleo accumbens shell (NAcS) están involucrados en el incremento de las propiedades hedónicas del alimento. Para probar esta hipótesis, este estudio tuvo como objetivo evaluar los efectos de la activación de los RCB1 en el NAcS sobre la ingesta de alimento estándar durante la fase de luz del ciclo luz-oscuridad. Se evaluaron los efectos de la activación de los RCB1 con WIN 55-212-2 y CP 55,940 (0.125, 0.25, y 0.5 nmol) en el NAcS sobre la conducta alimentaria y la secuencia de saciedad conductual en ratas. Se encontró que ambos agonistas aumentaron la ingesta de alimento y demoraron la expresión de la saciedad durante la fase de luz. Lo anterior sugiere que los agonistas canabinoides estimulan el consumo de alimento cuando la motivación por el mismo es baja y la palatabilidad es normal. Palabras clave: Canabinoides, alimentación, núcleo accumbens shell, secuencia de saciedad conductual. * R. Erick Escartín-Pérez.

CORTÉS-SALAZAR, SUÁREZ ORTÍZ, CENDEJAS TREJO, MANCILLA-DÍAZ, LÓPEZ-ALONSO, ESCARTÍN-PÉREZ A obesidade e suas patologias relacionadas são riscos de saúde muito conhecidos. Ainda que a obesidade e o sobrepeso possuam causas multifatoriais, a sobre ingestão de alimento é frequente nestas condições. De acordo com modelos animais, os endocanabinóides e seus receptores no cérebro jogam um papel chave na gênese e desenvolvimento da obesidade. Foi proposto que os receptores a canabinóides CB1 (RCB1) expressos no núcleo accumbens shell (NAcS) estão envolvidos no aumento das propriedades hedônicas do alimento. Para testar esta hipótese, este estudo teve como objetivo avaliar os efeitos da ativação dos RCB1 nos NAcS sobre a ingestão de alimento padrão durante a fase de luz do ciclo luz-escuridão. Avaliaram-se os efeitos da ativação dos RCB1 com WIN 55-212-2 e CP 55,940 (0.125, 0.25, e 0.5 nmol) no NAcS sobre a conduta alimentar e a sequência de saciedade condutual em ratos. Encontrou-se que ambos agonistas aumentaram a ingestão de alimento e demoraram a expressão da saciedade durante a fase de luz. Isso sugere que os agonistas canabinóides estimulam o consumo de alimento quando a motivação pelo mesmo é baixa e a palatabilidade é normal.

It was found that control animals began the test eating during the first periods, but subsequently the time spent eating decreased while the time of resting increased, showing the transition from eating to resting after the third period of the first hour of observation; activity and grooming remained low dur- ing the complete test (hour 1 and hour 2). As expected, in the second hour, control animals spent time resting during almost the complete 60-min record, reflecting satiety (Fig. 4. A, B).

The behavioral profile produced by intra-NAcS injec- tions of CP 55 940 (0.125, 0.25 and 0.5 nmol) was also assessed and it was found that all doses consistently de- layed the transition from eating to resting during the first hour of observation (after the 6th, 7th and 9th periods, respectively), with a corresponding increase on the time of activity (Figure 5. C, E, G). During the second hour of observation, the higher doses of CP 55 940 (0.25 and 0.5 nmol) decreased the time spent resting (Figure 5.

The present study was aimed to test the hypothesis that acute activation of CB1R in the NAcS stimulate standard Figure 3.
