Early postnatal overnutrition: potential roles of gastrointestinal vagal afferents and brain-derived neurotrophic factor

Physiology & Behavior

Edward A Fox, Jessica E Biddinger

Abstract

Abnormal perinatal nutrition (APN) results in a predisposition to develop obesity and the metabolic syndrome and thus may contribute to the prevalence of these disorders. Obesity, including that which develops in organisms exposed to APN, has been associated with increased meal size. Va...read more

Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is characterized by obesity, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia and hypertension. It significantly increases the risk for cardiovascular and disease and type 2 diabetes. Increasing prevalence has been associated with the increasing rates of obesity worldwide. Here is the latest research on the metabolic syndrome.

Neurotransmitters

Neurotransmitters are released from synaptic vesicles in presynaptic neurons in response to neural activity, diffuse across the synaptic cleft, and bind specific receptors in order to bring about changes in postsynaptic neurons. Here is the latest research.

Eating Disorders

Eating disorders-including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and eating disorders that are not otherwise specified, which include binge eating disorder-are challenging health issues. Here is the latest research on eating disorders.

Vagal Control of Feeding

The vagus nerve has afferent and efferent pathways that affect satiation, regulate appetite, and control feeding behavior. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to the vagal control of feeding.
