Recent technologic innovations have enabled probing the workings of individual cells and even molecules. As a result, our knowledge of the biological controls over eating and the regulation of body adiposity is increasing at a rapid pace. We review the evidence that food intake is controlled by separate but interacting groups of molecular signals. One group… CONTINUE READING
