Deep brain stimulation for obesity in the normal non human primate: A preclinical approach.
TLDR
It is concluded that stimulating the VMH region throughout an Intraventricular approach might modulate acutely food ingestion and induce a sustained decrease in weight and in fat content in normal non obese human primates.
STUDIES OF THE VENTROMEDIAL HYPOTHALAMUS WITH AUTORADIOGRAPHIC TECHNIQUES *
TLDR
A neutron activation technique and radioautography correlated with metabolic studies to determine diffuse gold distribution throughout the brain showed that only goldthioglucose is specifically accumulated in discrete areas, one of which is the ventromedial area of the hypothalamus.
Prolonged Activation of Brain CB2 Signaling Modulates Hypothalamic Microgliosis and Astrogliosis in High Fat Diet-Fed Mice
TLDR
Data indicate that central CB2 signaling modulates glucose homeostasis and glial reactivity in obesogenic conditions, irrespective of changes in body weight.
Ventromedial Nucleus of the Hypothalamus Neurons Under the Magnifying Glass
TLDR
A review of recent findings at the ventromedial nucleus of the hypothalamus aims to integrate recent findings into the literature and contemplate the conclusions that can be drawn.
Resting-state functional connectivity of the human hypothalamus.
New Insights of SF1 Neurons in Hypothalamic Regulation of Obesity and Diabetes
TLDR
This review addresses the most relevant studies carried out in SF1 neurons to provide a global view of the central role played by these neurons in the pathogenesis of obesity and diabetes.
Leptin and Obesity: Role and Clinical Implication
TLDR
This review examines recent data obtained from human and animal studies related to leptin, its role in obesity, and its usefulness in obesity treatment.

ELECTRICAL STIMULATION OF POINTS IN THE FOREBRAIN AND MIDBRAIN: THE RESULTANT ALTERATIONS IN BLOOD PRESSURE
TLDR
An extensive investigation was undertaken in this laboratory into the responses of the hypothalamus to electrical stimulation and the brain was explored millimeter by millimeter from a level close to the junction of the olfactory bulb and tract.
DESCENDING CONNECTIONS FROM THE HYPOTHALAMUS
TLDR
The presence in the hypothalamic region of the brain of a central representation of the autonomic nervous system implies the existence of a descending pathway or collection of paths transmitting influences from this region to lower centers and thence to the peripheral nervous system.
The lipoid, calcium, phosphorus and iron content of rats with hypothalamic and hypophyseal damage.
TLDR
The recent work by Hetherington and Ranson, showing that obesity in the rat can also be produced by the placing of electrolytic lesions in the hypothalamus, has afforded an opportunity to extend the analytical studiessummarised in the first communication.
Experimental Hypothalamico-Hypophyseal Obesity in the Rat.∗
TLDR
In an effort to discover the reason for this divergence of findings, Smith's chromic acid injections on rats are repeated, with modifications, to minimize the danger of simultaneous hypothalamic damage.
