Neuropeptide-Y alters VTA dopamine neuron activity through both pre- and postsynaptic mechanisms

Journal of Neurophysiology

Katherine Stuhrman West, Aaron G Roseberry

Abstract

The mesocorticolimbic dopamine system, the brain's reward system, regulates many different behaviors including food intake, food reward, and feeding-related behaviors, and there is increasing evidence that hypothalamic feeding-related neuropeptides alter dopamine neuron activity to affe...read more

Neural Control of Overconsumption

Overconsumption is associated with activity of a complex network of neuroregulators affecting areas such as drug addiction and binge eating. Discover the latest research on neural control of overconsumption here.

Basal Forebrain & Food Avoidance

Neurons in the basal forebrain play specific roles in regulating feeding. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to the basal forebrain and food avoidance.

Hedonic Feeding

Hedonic feeding is eating to obtain pleasure in the absence of an energy deficit. Recent evidence suggests that the hunger hormone ghrelin is involved in hedonic feeding through the dopaminergic reward pathway. Discover the latest research on hedonic feeding here.

Neurotransmitters in Feeding

Serotonin and dopamine are neurotransmitters involved in feeding and eating disorders. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to neurotransmitters in feeding.

Neural Circuits Regulating Feeding

Neurons within the central nervous system receive signals that regulate feeding and metabolism. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to neural circuits in regulating feeding.

Gfral Neurons Reduce Food Intake

GFRAL is a receptor for growth differentiation factor 15 (GDF15). These proteins play a role in regulating inflammatory pathways, as well as cell repair, apoptosis, cell growth, and body-weight regulation. Here is the latest research on the role of GFRAL-expressing neurons in reducing food intake.

Cortical Control of Locomotion

There exist several mechanisms and neural circuits in the cortex that enable organisms to move from one place to another. Discover the latest research on cortical control of locomotion here.

Neural Circuits in Stress & Feeding

Studies have reported important roles for subpopulations of gabaergic cells in the regulation of both feeding and arousal. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to neural circuits in stress and feeding.

Hippocampus & Feeding

Human and animal data suggest that the hippocampus plays many roles in regulating food intake. Discover the latest research on hippocampus and feeding here.

Dopamine & Feeding

Midbrain dopamine neurons have long been implicated in mediating reward behavior and the motivational aspects of feeding behavior. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to dopamine and feeding.

Dopamine & Behavior

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter and a hormone commonly associated with the brain's pleasure and reward system. Here is the latest research on its role in affecting and guiding human behaviour.

Dopaminergic System

This feed focuses on projection neurons in the brain which are responsible for synthesis and release of neurotransmitter dopamine.

Neuropeptides

There are >50 peptides released by neurons that function as neuromodulators, neurotransmitters, neurohormones, and hormones. Here is the latest research on the systemic function of neuropeptides in the body.
