Neuropeptide Y (NPY) is a powerful stimulus to food intake in the rat. Exogenous NPY given into the third ventricle or into the paraventricular nucleus (PVN) of the hypothalamus stimulates both food consumption as well as the hypothalamus‐pituitary‐adrenal (HPA) axis. Presumably NPY activates the adrenocortical system through direct stimulation of CRF containing cells in the PVN. Food intake is also a major regulator of adrenocortical activation. Rhythms in HPA axis activity follow rhythms in… Expand
Neuropeptide S stimulates the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis and inhibits food intake.
TLDR
Data demonstrate a novel role for NPS in the stimulation of the HPA axis and the effect of intracerebroventricular administration of NPS on behavior, regulation of theHPA axis, and food intake. Expand
Hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus injections of urocortin alter food intake and respiratory quotient
TLDR
The results suggest that UCN-sensitive mechanisms within the PVN may modulate food intake and energy substrate utilization, possibly through an interaction with hypothalamic NPY. Expand
Direct evidence that stimulation of neuropeptide Y Y5 receptor activates hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis in conscious rats via both corticotropin-releasing factor- and arginine vasopressin-dependent pathway.
TLDR
These observations provide the first evidence that selective stimulation of Y(5) receptor provokes activation of the HPA axis and its downstream pathway is chiefly composed of both CRF (primary regulator) and AVP (subordinate to the former) with distinct relative contribution. Expand
Hypothalamic‐Pituitary‐Adrenal Responses to Centrally Administered Orexin‐A are Suppressed in Pregnant Rats
TLDR
The responsiveness of PVN CRH neurones to orexin‐A, and hence the pituitary‐adrenal axis, is markedly reduced in pregnancy, which may favour anabolic adaptations in pregnancy. Expand
Neuroendocrine Actions Of Neuropeptide Y
TLDR
When considered together with the critical orexigenic effects of NPY, it is evident that the arcuate NPY system is important in integrating a variety of physiological, neuroendocrine and behavioral responses to conditions of nutritional inadequacy. Expand
Fasting activates neuropeptide Y neurons in the arcuate nucleus and the paraventricular nucleus in the rhesus macaque.
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that the NPY neurocircuitry involved in the regulation of food intake is more complex in the NHP than in rodents. Expand
Site-specific attenuation of food intake but not the latency to eat after hypothalamic injections of neuropeptide Y in dehydrated-anorexic rats.
TLDR
The hypothesis that DE-anorexia develops as a consequence of the premature termination of regularly initiated meals is supported, which perhaps involves processes that alter the sensitivity of satiety mechanisms downstream to the PVH and LHA. Expand
Neuropeptide Y-induced feeding and its control.
TLDR
This chapter critically reviews evidence of physiologically relevant appetite stimulation by neuropeptide Y (NPY) to forecast how this knowledge might be applied in the context of eating disorders and identifies a novel receptor for NPY that appears to meet all the criteria necessary to be designated the “feeding” receptor distinct from previously cloned Y-type receptors.

23 Neuropeptide Y in Brain Function
Neuropeptide Y (NPY), a 36‐amino‐acid peptide is abundantly expressed throughout the mammalian nervous system including: neocortex, hippocampus, striatum, amygdala, hypothalamus, thalamus, and brainExpand
Antagonistic interplay between hypocretin and leptin in the lateral hypothalamus regulates stress responses
TLDR
It is shown that neurons that produce hypocretin/orexin in the lateral hypothalamic area (LHA) regulate corticosterone release and a variety of behaviours and physiological hallmarks of the stress response, and one mechanism through which hyperarousal or altered metabolic states may be linked with abnormal stress responses is suggested.

Neuropeptide Y (NPY) in the area of the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus activates the pituitary-adrenocortical axis in the rat
TLDR
An activating effect of NPY is demonstrated on the pituitary-adrenocortical axis both in conscious and anaesthetized rats which may reflect the anatomical relationship between NPY fibres and CRF neurones in the PVN. Expand
Feeding responses to perifornical hypothalamic injection of neuropeptide Y in relation to circadian rhythms of eating behavior
TLDR
The results show that NPY was effective at every time tested, and that the magnitude of the peptide-elicited intakes was primarily additive to the underlying patterns of spontaneous intake, with only a modest daily cycle of sensitivity to NPY. Expand
Effect of neuropeptide Y on ingestive behaviors in the rat.
TLDR
The effects of NPY on food intake were attenuated by peripherally administered bombesin and centrally administered corticotropin-releasing factor and calcitonin, and cholecystokinin failed to inhibit NPY-induced feeding, and NPY did not alter circulating glucose levels. Expand
Glucocorticoids are Required for Food Deprivation‐Induced Increases in Hypothalamic Neuropeptide Y Expression
TLDR
It is demonstrated that glucocorticoids are necessary and serve a stimulatory role in the increase in hypothalamic preproNPY mRNA levels observed under conditions of FD, and suggested that hypothalamic NPY gene expression may be directly responsive to peripheral metabolic and hormonal signals. Expand
Neuropeptide Y: stimulation of feeding and drinking by injection into the paraventricular nucleus.
TLDR
An important role is suggested for hypothalamic NPY, or a structurally-related peptide, in the regulation of feeding and drinking behavior in satiated, brain-cannulated rats. Expand
Neuropeptide Y secretion increases in the paraventricular nucleus in association with increased appetite for food.
TLDR
Findings of intense and dynamic NPY neurosecretory activity within a discrete hypothalamic site in association with an increased drive for food consumption demonstrate that NPY release in the PVN is an important orexigenic signal for periodic eating behavior. Expand
Neuropeptide Y increases the corticotropin-releasing factor messenger ribonucleic acid level in the rat hypothalamus.
TLDR
Central administration of NPY increases the CRF mRNA levels in the hypothalamus and the probable CRF release, which increases the proopiomelanocortin mRNA levels and ACTH secretion in the anterior pituitary, indicating that NPY seems to play a physiological role in the regulation of the release and synthesis of CRF in theothalamus. Expand
Regulation of activity in the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis is integral to a larger hypothalamic system that determines caloric flow.
TLDR
The results show that food deprivation induces marked ACTH and B responses during the fast that mirrors the pattern of food intake in fed rats, and results in essentially no change in basal ACTH in the morning, which indicates the HPA axis is integral to a larger hypothalamic system that mediates energy flow. Expand
Hypothalamic neuropeptide Y gene expression in rats on scheduled feeding regimen.
TLDR
Results show a simultaneous enhancement in PVN NPY release and hypothalamic gene expression in advance of scheduled feeding time, but food intake rapidly decreases PVNNPy release and content, with little impact on hypothalamic genes expression. Expand
Further studies on the effects of central administration of neuropeptide Y on neuroendocrine function in the male rat: relationship to hypothalamic catecholamines
TLDR
It is suggested that the NPY induced changes in DA utilization in the tuberoinfundibular DA neurons may contribute to theNPY induced changed in PRL and TSH secretion. Expand
