Researchers have identified two subpopulations of neurons in the BNST that connect to separate populations of neurons in the lateral hypothalamus which appear to drive two opposing emotional states; avoidance and reward seeking
Suppressing the activity of hypothalamic neurons in mice during REM sleep resulted in a decrease in the amount of food later consumed. The study suggests REM sleep is essential to stabilize food intake.
Researchers discover a link between neural activity in the lateral hypothalamus and the state of REM sleep.
Researchers have pinpointed the precise cellular connections responsible for triggering overeating.
A new study reveals how NCOR1/2 regulates memory involving a newly identified circuit between the lateral hypothalamus and hippocampus. Researchers believe the findings could have implications for future studies related to ASD and neurodegenerative diseases.
