The battle over inhibitory synaptic plasticity in satiety brain circuits

Thomas J. Younts, Pablo E. Castillo

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The synaptic basis underlying food intake is poorly understood. New research shows that an animal's satiety state dictates the polarity of long-term inhibitory synaptic plasticity in the hypothalamus, which is mediated by an activity-dependent competition between endocannabinoid and nitric oxide signaling.
