Lactation is a physiological model for studying how the hypothalamus integrates peripheral signals, such as sensory signals (suckling stimulus) and those denoting energy balance (leptin), to alter hypothalamic function regulating food intake/energy balance and reproduction. The characteristics of food intake/energy balance during lactation are extreme hyperphagia, coupled with negative energy balance. The arcuate nucleus Neuropeptide Y (ARH-NPY) system is activated by: (1) brainstem projections… CONTINUE READING
