A new study could help explain how the hungry brain hinders dieting.
A new study could have positive implications for developing anti obesity treatments.
New findings revise the current models for homeostatic control, researchers report.
Researchers have identified a mechanism that drives hunger. A new study reports the sight or smell of food can temporarily turn of AgRP neurons, which drive the urge to eat. These neurons remain inactive until the brain receives a signal from the gut that calories have been consumed.
Researchers discover a control mechanism for neurons involved in hunger and eating disorders.
The absence of a specific type of neuron in the brain can lead to obesity and diabetes in mice report researchers. The outcome, however, depends on the type of diet that the animals are fed.
Researchers say the sight and smell of food alone may be enough to prompt the liver to start the processes that help digest food.
Researchers report that your hypothalamic neurons could be to blame why your diet is making you feel negative.
