Behavioral studies have indicated that midbrain dopamine projections arising in the ventral tegmental area and substantia nigra play a central role in integrating violations of expectancy in reward-related paradigms. The present study was designed to assess violations of dietary expectation and the role the dopamine-3 receptor plays in integrating reward-related food intake in violations of expectancy. Two groups of rats were conditioned to a meal-feeding schedule (3 h of access to food per day) in which they received either standard rodent chow or a preferable, high-fat diet. Animals either received the diet they had access to during the training period (no contrast) or the opposite diet (negative and positive contrast). As predicted, animals in the positive contrast condition were hyperphagic compared to no contrast animals. Animals in the negative contrast (high fat to chow) condition were hypophagic compared to no contrast animals. A dopamine agonist specific to the dopamine three receptor, ((+/-)-7-Hydroxy-dipropylaminotetralin HBr) and the dopamine-2 receptor antagonist raclopride were administered in equimolar doses peripherally to assess the involvement of the dopamine receptor subtypes in the violation of expectancy food intake effects. 7-Hydroxy-dipropylaminotetralin HBr blocked the hyperphagia associated with positive contrast and did not disrupt intake in the negative contrast or no contrast paradigm. Raclopride was ineffective at disrupting food intake. These results support the hypothesis that the dopamine-3 receptor is involved in the hyperphagia of an unexpected high fat meal.
