Hypothalamic neuron circuits regulating energy balance are highly plastic and develop in response to nutrient and hormonal cues. To identify processes that might be susceptible to gestational influences in mice, we characterized the ontogeny of proopiomelanocortin (POMC) and neuropeptide Y (NPY) cell populations, which exert opposing influences on food(More)

The central glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) system has been implicated in the control of feeding behavior. Here we explore GLP-1 mediation of the anorexic response to administration of systemic LPS and address the relative importance of caudal brain stem and forebrain GLP-1 receptor (GLP-1-R) for the mediation of the response.
