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.
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.
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.
A new study reports brown fat interacts with secretin, a gut hormone, to signal the feeling of fullness to the brain while eating.
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 reveals the role dopamine plays in controlling eating behaviors. Researchers found when people crave specific foods, the brain releases more dopamine when they finally consume the item. The study reports the gastrointestinal tract is in constant contact with the brain and uses reward stimuli to control our desire for food.
Researchers have identified neurons in the brains of rats that control future food intake by preserving memories of past meals. The findings suggest boosting meal memories could help to manage overeating and curb obesity.
