Note:

The outcomes of the proposed work will provide the first detailed mapping of brain circuits directly engaged by hormone-sensing neurons. Knowledge of the location of these circuits will provide critical information to neuroscientists seeking to carefully stimulate or silence feeding control circuits with a finer degree of precision. This work will also help scientists understand how such circuits are responsive to shifting conditions in an organism's energy state, as coded by fluctuations in key metabolic hormones such as insulin, leptin, PYY and ghrelin.
