Correlation between body mass index and striatal dopamine transporter availability in healthy volunteers - A SPECT study

Abstract

Recent lines of research suggest that, in addition to hypothalamic sites, the striatum dopaminergic system may be a target for regulating homeostasis that may be represented by the body mass index (BMI). Although it has been reported that the striatal dopamine receptor (DRD2) availability of very obese individuals was reduced in proportion to their BMI, the… (More)
