This series provides readers with essays which focus on behaviour as it expresses brain mechanisms. In this volume, Dennis Lorenz presents a comprehensive theory of ingestion and satiety, and Harry Shair and Myron Hofer discuss the interaction of sleeping and feeding in the young, providing original experiments and discussing their results in greater depth than journal articles allow. Sleep is the sole focus of the essay by Dennis McGinity and Jerry Siegel. They not only offer insights into the neural regulation of sleep gained from chronic single-unit studies, but also include a thorough description of the microwire technique they used to relate neuronal activity to behaviour.
