Glucose is a major fuel for body energy metabolism and an essential metabolic fuel for the brain. Consequently, glucose deficit (glucoprivation) elicits a variety of physiological and behavioral responses crucial for survival. Previous work indicates an important role for brain catecholamine neurons in mediation of responses to glucoprivation. This experiment was conducted to identify the specific catecholamine neurons that are activated by glucoprivation. Activation of hindbrain catecholamine… CONTINUE READING
