Nutrient sensitive neurons (glucose and fatty acids (FA)) are present in many sites throughout the brain, including the hypothalamus and brainstem, and play a key role in the neural control of energy and glucose homeostasis. Through neuronal output, FA may modulate feeding behaviour as well as both insulin secretion and action. For example, central(More)
Fatty acid (FA)-sensitive neurons are present in the brain, especially the hypothalamus, and play a key role in the neural control of energy homeostasis. Through neuronal output, FA may modulate feeding behaviour as well as insulin secretion and action. Subpopulations of neurons in the ventromedial and arcuate hypothalamic nuclei are selectively either(More)
Nutrient-sensitive neurons [to glucose and fatty acids (FAs)] are present at many sites throughout the brain, including the hypothalamus and brain stem, and play a key role in the neural control of energy and glucose homoeostasis. Through their neuronal output, FAs can modulate feeding behaviour as well as insulin secretion and activity. Central(More)
