BACKGROUND Protein is indispensable in the human diet, and its intake appears tightly regulated. The role of sensory attributes of foods in protein intake regulation is far from clear. OBJECTIVE We investigated the effect of human protein status on neural responses to different food cues with the use of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). The(More)
Although angiogenesis is a prerequisite for the growth of most human solid tumours, alternative mechanisms of vascularisation can be adopted. We have previously described a non-angiogenic growth pattern in liver metastases of colorectal adenocarcinomas (CRC) in which tumour cells replace hepatocytes at the tumour-liver interface, preserving the liver(More)
Cumulative food intake curves and diet-induced thermogenesis were recorded in women during four-course solid-food lunches, consisting of familiar and unfamiliar food, offered in ad lib or restricted portions, in order to assess a possible relation between eating behaviour on the one hand and a reflection of internal processes and subject characteristics on(More)
Estimates of forthcoming intake were compared with amount eaten in women who were normal-weight restrained eaters, unrestrained eaters or overweight restrained eaters, for three four-course lunches of which the first consisted mainly of an Italian menu, the second and third mainly a Japanese menu. The differences between estimated and eaten amounts for the(More)
