At SciAm blogs today: orexin and binge eating rats

Sep 17 2012 Published by under Behavioral Neuro

Sci is at SciAm blogs today, talking about a new study on orexin and binge eating in rats. Orexin is a newish neurotransmitter with a couple of interesting behavioral effects, one of which is on appetite. It's an interesting study and it's nice to see a 'new' molecule pick up steam. Head over and check it out.

One response so far

    I have Narcolepsy and orexin (or the lack thereof) is involved in that. I'm very interested in hearing anything even remotely related.
