New information regarding neuronal circuits that control food intake and their hormonal regulation has extended our understanding of energy homeostasis, the process whereby energy intake is matched to energy expenditure over time. The profound obesity that results in rodents (and in the rare human case as well) from mutation of key signalling molecules involved in this regulatory system highlights its importance to human health. Although each new signalling pathway discovered in the… Expand
The hypothalamus and energy balance
TLDR
This review focuses on physical exercise as a mechanism to restore physiological rhythm preventing hyperphagia and obesity in humans and its ability to reduce cerebral energy demands and therefore promote sleep, which could be beneficial for maintaining brain function and improving brain plasticity. Expand
CNS-targets in control of energy and glucose homeostasis.
TLDR
This review summarizes recent findings regarding the role of the CNS in sensing and transmitting nutritional and hormonal signals to control energy and glucose homeostasis and aims to define them as potential novel drug targets for the treatment of obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Expand
Hypothalamic Lipids and the Regulation of Energy Homeostasis
TLDR
What is currently known about the relationship between hypothalamic lipid metabolism and whole body energy homeostasis is reviewed to offer new therapeutic targets for the treatment of obesity and its associated pathologies. Expand
Regulation of food intake through hypothalamic signaling networks involving mTOR.
TLDR
The role of hypothalamic intracellular fuel sensors in the overall control of energy balance is provided and the potential contribution of these fuel-sensing mechanisms to the metabolic dysregulation associated with obesity is discussed. Expand
Central Integration of Environmental and Endogenous Signals Important in the Regulation of Food Intake and Energy Expenditure
TLDR
Current understanding of the central pathways regulating energy homeostasis in the central nervous system receive and integrate signals from the periphery that convey information about the status of energy fluxes and stores is summarized. Expand
Peripheral tissue–brain interactions in the regulation of food intake
TLDR
Research into energy balance is summarised, starting from the original classical hypotheses proposing metabolite sensing, through peripheral tissue–brain interactions and coming full circle to the recently-discovered role of hypothalamic fatty acid synthase in feeding regulation. Expand
Neuronal systems and circuits involved in the control of food intake and adaptive thermogenesis
TLDR
The organization and functionality of key neuronal circuits or pathways involved in the control of food intake and energy expenditure are overviewed and the role of the corticolimbic and autonomic systems that integrate their activities to regulate energy balance is reviewed. Expand
How the hypothalamus controls glucose production: an update
TLDR
In this review, the neuroendocrine circuits that have recently been involved in the regulation of endogenous glucose production in rodents will be described and the study of these neural pathways promises to unveil new targets for the therapy of Type 2 diabetes and obesity. Expand
Integrative neurobiology of energy homeostasis-neurocircuits, signals and mediators
TLDR
This review summarizes some of the latest developments in the field and focuses on the effects of leptin, insulin, and nutrient-related signals in the central regulation of feeding behavior, with a view to developing new therapeutic interventions within the current obesity epidemic. Expand
Towards Defining the Role of CNS Circuits in Control of Energy Homeostasis
TLDR
It is shown that mice with a SF-1 neuron specific ablation of the insulin receptor are at least in part protected against HFD-induced alterations of metabolic parameters, and the role of Fto was investigated in mesencephalic dopaminergic neurons using the perforated-patch configuration. Expand

Unraveling the central nervous system pathways underlying responses to leptin
TLDR
The physiological mechanisms underlying leptin action are considered, along with several novel hypothalamic neuropeptides that affect food intake and body weight, and a model linking populations of leptin-responsive neurons with effectors underlying leptin's endocrine, autonomic and behavioral effects is proposed. Expand
A role for melanin-concentrating hormone in the central regulation of feeding behaviour
TLDR
It is shown that one mRNA that is overexpressed in the hypothalamus of ob/ob mice encodes the neuropeptide melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH), which suggests that MCH participates in the leptin regulation of body weight. Expand
Endocrine regulation of neurotransmitter transporters
TLDR
Evidence is provided that insulin and adrenal and gonadal steroid hormones may regulate the synthesis and activity of the transporters, and the role of endocrines in the maintenance of normal CNS aminergic signalling is discussed. Expand

TLDR
Findings do not support the suggestion made by Brobeck (1946) that food intake is controlled as part of the normal regulation of body temperature by a thermosensitive hypothalamic centre and the maximum daily in take of food during hyperphagia appears to be determined by some limiting factor additional to the hypothalamic mechanism. Expand
Hypothalamic CART is a new anorectic peptide regulated by leptin
TLDR
It is shown that CART (cocaine- and amphetamine-regulated transcript), a brain-located peptide, is a satiety factor and is closely associated with the actions of two important regulators of food intake, leptin and neuropeptide Y. Expand
Role of the CNS Melanocortin System in the Response to Overfeeding
TLDR
Results indicate that CNS MCs mediate hypophagic signaling in response to involuntary overfeeding and support the hypothesis that MCs are important in the central control of energy homeostasis. Expand
Signals that regulate food intake and energy homeostasis.
TLDR
This review focuses on the molecular signals that modulate food intake while integrating the body's immediate and long-term energy needs. Expand
Hypothalamic serotonin in control of eating behavior, meal size, and body weight
TLDR
Evidence that supports a role for hypothalamic serotonergic receptor mechanisms in the mediation of eating behavior and body weight disorders is reviewed, and a model that proposes the involvement of circulating hormones and glucose in this feedback process is described. Expand
Leptin inhibits hypothalamic neurons by activation of ATP-sensitive potassium channels
TLDR
It is shown that leptin hyperpolarizes glucose-receptive hypothalamic neurons of lean Sprague–Dawley and Zucker rats, but is ineffective on neurons of obese Zucker (fa/fa ) rats, and single-channel recordings demonstrate that leptin activates an ATP-sensitive potassium (KATP) channel. Expand
Leptin actions on food intake and body temperature are mediated by IL-1.
TLDR
It is proposed that in addition to its role in body weight regulation, leptin may mediate neuroimmune responses via actions in the brain dependent on release of IL-1 and prostaglandins. Expand
