The pancreatic hormone amylin decreases food intake via activation of area postrema (AP) neurons. We investigated whether amylin's potency to reduce food intake and to induce c-Fos expression in the AP/nucleus of the solitary tract region is affected by the feeding conditions and specifically by the macronutrient composition of the diet. Whereas a low dose(More)
The hypothalamic arcuate nucleus (Arc) is a target site for signals regulating energy homeostasis. The orexigenic hormone ghrelin directly activates neurons of the medial arcuate nucleus (ArcM) in rats. Nitric oxide (NO) is a neuromodulator implicated in the control of food intake and body weight. NO is produced by nitric oxide synthase (NOS) and induces(More)
