Peptides Involved in Appetite Modulation Scientific Review

Sonia A. Tucci, Lynsay Kobelis and Tim C. Kirkham, University of Liverpool

Review excerpt: "The appetite-stimulatory circuit expresses orexigenic neurotransmitters which promote appetite, while anorexigenic neurotransmitters released by the inhibitory circuit reduce appetite. In addition to modulation by signals originating in the periphery, these integrative functions are affected by a wide range of neural influences within the brain, reflecting sensory, cognitive, memory and affective processes."
