Abstract: Weight gain is a common outcome of antipsychotics therapy in schizophrenic patients. However, the underlying neuronal mechanisms are unclear. The present study was undertaken to investigate the role of GABAA receptors within the framework of nucleus accumbens shell (AcbSh) in haloperidol-induced hyperphagia and body weight gain in sated rats.
