Both acute and chronic i.p. administration of the GABAB receptor agonist baclofen (bac) increases food intake in non-deprived rats (Patel et al., 2010). However, it has been reported that i.p bac reduces intake of fats in rats in various feeding paradigms in which the animals were presented simultaneously with their normal chow and fat (see Wang et al., 2011).The present study was conducted to investigate the effects of bac on fat intake in non-deprived rats.
