Signalling in body-weight homeostasis: neuroendocrine efferent signals.

Abstract

Whilst a number of neuroendocrine afferent signals are implicated in body-weight homeostasis, the major efferent pathway is the sympathetic nervous system (SNS), which affects both energy expenditure and substrate utilization. Thyroid hormones and their interactions with the SNS may also have a role to play. Some of the variability in resting energy… (More)
