Researchers have identified neurons in the guts of C. elegans that detect when bacteria are ingested and release a neurotransmitter that signals the brain to halt locomotion.
A new study reports brown fat interacts with secretin, a gut hormone, to signal the feeling of fullness to the brain while eating.
A new study reveals a link between elevates microbiome levels of indole and hedonic eating. Researchers report those with higher levels of indole are more likely to have food addiction and overeating disorders.
According to a Cell Reports study, mice with abnormal eating schedules are more likely to develop skin cancer cells. Researchers report abnormal eating times disrupt the skin's circadian cycle and weakens the potency of an enzyme that protects against UV rays.
Eating late, or at inappropriate times might have a significant impact on both weight and normal sleep-wake patterns, a new study published in Cell Metabolism reports.
Researchers report their discovery could open new doors for the development of drugs to control obesity and weight gain.
A new study reveals how brain activity alters when presented with desirable foods.
Researchers have discovered chemical circuits and mechanisms in the brain that separate food consumption from cravings.
