Brain Stimulation to Modulate Food Intake and Eating Behavior.

Link – Brain Stimulation to Modulate Food Intake and Eating Behavior. Abstract PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Appetitive behaviors are mediated through homeostatic and reward signaling of brain circuits. There has been increasing interest in the use of neuromodulation techniques aimed at targeting brain regions such as the lateral prefrontal and subcortical regions associated with dysregulation of […]

Food Seeking Depends on Vagus-Mediated Neuron Activity

Link – Postingestive Modulation of Food Seeking Depends on Vagus-Mediated Dopamine Neuron Activity. Abstract Postingestive nutrient sensing can induce food preferences. However, much less is known about the ability of postingestive signals to modulate food-seeking behaviors. Here we report a causal connection between postingestive sucrose sensing and vagus-mediated dopamine neuron activity in the ventral tegmental […]
