Feeding Behaviour and the Migrating Myoelectric Complex
Many food intake studies have been performed, concerning feeding behaviour (1,2,3), the role of the nervous system (4) or the role of some peptides (5,6,7), especially cholecystokinin (8,9,10). A wide litterature is also existing about factors of all kinds acting on the intestinal motility and the occurence of the MMC; few works however concern psychic mechanisms (11).
