Parenterally administered substance P suppressed stress-induced eating (resulting from mild tail pinch) in a dose-related manner, whereas at similar or higher doses of substance P starvation-induced eating was uneffected. This specific effect of substance P on stress-induced eating is possibly associated with alterations by exogenous substance P of the normal modulation of pain transmission.
