A new study reports obese teens have disrupted connectivity between numerous areas of the brain involved in appetite regulation.
Neurons in the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BNST) appear to regulate food intake. The neurons appear to form part of a network that controls appetite loss in mice.
A new study reports human fat cells have their own internal clocks and circadian rhythms which affect metabolic functions.
The way to a woman's heart could very well be via her stomach. New research finds women respond better to romantic cues when they are full.
Recent findings from University of Warwick researchers could help find new treatments to control eating habits that lead to obesity. Researchers discovered tanycytes detect amino acids from food and directly 'tell' the brain when we feel full. Certain food, such as chicken, lentils and avocados, activate tanycytes and make us feel fuller quicker.
A new study reports brown fat interacts with secretin, a gut hormone, to signal the feeling of fullness to the brain while eating.
