Metabolic, cognitive, and environmental factors processed in the forebrain modulate food intake by changing the potency of direct controls of meal ingestion in the brain stem. Here, we behaviorally and anatomically test the role of the hypothalamic proopiomelanocortin (POMC) system in mediating some of these descending, indirect controls. Melanotan II (MTII), a stable melanocortin 4 receptor (MC4R) and melanocortin 3 receptor (MC3R) agonist injected into the fourth ventricle near the dorsal… CONTINUE READING
