In animal studies of motivation, hunger and thirst have traditionally been the most thoroughly investigated motives. In the Handbook of the Psychology of Aging (1977), Elias and Elias begin their review of motivation with animal studies of hunger-induced drives. This biologically based motivation is not reviewed in their section on human motivation and the subsequent editions of the Handbook do not discuss this topic. The 1977 review is of limited value for understanding these motives on the human level.
