Recent studies suggest that human neuropeptide Y (NPY) plays a prominent role in management of stress response and emotion, and higher NPY levels observed in combat-exposed veterans may help coping with posttraumatic stress. Neuropeptide F (NPF), the counterpart of NPY in Drosophila melanogaster, also displays parallel activities, including promotion of resilience to diverse stressors and prevention of uncontrolled aggressive behavior. However, it remains unclear how NPY family peptides… CONTINUE READING
