    Sammanfattning : An adequate supply of nutrients through food intake is critical for survival, as evidenced by disorders such as obesity and anorexia, which in the long run may be life-threatening. Feeding behaviour is ultimately controlled by interacting neuronal populations in the brain. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Distribution and connectivity of messenger molecules in the control of energy metabolism : focus on neuropeptides and calcium binding proteins

    Författare :Kylie S Foo; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Feeding is an essential and complex behavior which aims to provide the energy required for maintaining physiological homeostasis. The drive to feed is a powerful stimulus arising from metabolic demands, and reinforced by evolutionary pressure. LÄS MER

    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Pathological deviations in body weight is a major health problem. It is currently unclear how normal body weight and food intake is controlled. There is even less understanding of the mechanisms behind abnormal eating behavior as in anorexia and obesity. LÄS MER
