Article
A plethora of studies to date has examined the roles of feeding-related peptides in the control of food intake. However, the influence of these peptides on the intake of particular macronutrient constituents of food – carbohydrate, fat, and protein – has not been as extensively addressed in the literature. Here, the roles of several feeding-related...

Background: Intermittent access to ethanol (EtOH) drives persistent escalation of intake and rapid transition from moderate to compulsive-like drinking. Intermittent EtOH drinking may facilitate escalation in part by altering aversion-sensitive neural substrates, such as the insular cortex (IC), thus driving greater approach toward stimuli previous...
Article
Obesity is a prevalent disease, but effective treatments remain limited. Agonists of the alpha-7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (α7nAChR) promote negative energy balance in mice, but these effects are not well-studied in rats. We tested the hypothesis that the α7nAChR agonist GTS-21 would decrease food intake and body weight in adult male Sprague...

Opioid use disorder (OUD) and opioid-related deaths remain a significant public health crisis having reached epidemic status globally. OUDs are defined as chronic, relapsing conditions often characterized by compulsive drug seeking despite the deleterious consequences of drug taking. The use of nicotine-containing products has been linked to increa...

Binge eating involves consumption of large amounts of food and a loss of control over the amount consumed. The incidence of binge eating disorder is higher in females than males, hinting at important sex differences in binge eating behavior, but the neural underpinnings of binge eating still remain unresolved. Recent work in male rats has shown tha...
Article
Binge eating involves eating larger than normal quantities of food within a discrete period of time. The neurohormonal controls governing binge-like palatable food intake are not well understood. Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), a hormone produced peripherally in the intestine and centrally in the nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS), reduces food inta...
