Behaviour is often affected by changes in metabolism and energy state. This idea is illustrated by the colloquial phrase "feeling hangry", describing a state of anger caused by acute hunger or energy deprivation. This thesis examines how a region of the brain known as the ventromedial hypothalamus integrates both metabolic and behavioural functions.
