Cholecystokinin (CCK) reduces total food consumption in mice, rats, pigs, sheep, monkeys and humans. Behaviors associated with an underlying state of satiety are reported after CCK administration. Reductions in exploration and social interactions by CCK are not due to true sedation or sleep, as measured by cortical EEG recordings. The satiety effects appear to be mediated by peripheral CCK receptors, through a feedback loop involving the vagus nerve. The conceptual link between the behavioral functions of CCK as a putative satiety signal and its established digestive functions are discussed.
