Cumulative feed intake of broiler chicks after ICV administration with saline (control, n = 9), 0.8 μmol (n = 10) or 1.6 μmol (n = 7) L-glutamate. Feed intake was recorded at 0.25, 0.5, 1, 1.5, and 2 h post-administration; Data are represented as means ± S.E.M. Asterisk indicates significant difference from control group within each time point (P < 0.05).
