    Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland 21218, USA
    J Neurosci 27:6436-41. 2007
    ..The current findings suggest a critical role for vmPFC in the brain network that mediates control of conditioned motivation to eat perhaps by a mechanism akin to appetite or craving...

    Gorica D Petrovich
    Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD 21218, United States
    Physiol Behav 91:397-403. 2007
    ..The animal model may be informative for understanding control of eating in humans including maladaptive influences that contribute to overeating...

    Ann N Y Acad Sci 985:251-62. 2003
    ..In addition, this model may be informative for understanding mechanisms of maladaptive aspects of learned control of eating that contribute to eating disorders and more moderate forms of overeating...

    Gorica D Petrovich
    Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Johns Hopkins University, 3400 North Charles St, Baltimore, MD 21218, United States
    Physiol Behav 90:362-7. 2007
    ..Furthermore, the data suggest that CS-potentiation of eating does not induce a general motivation to eat, akin to hunger, but instead more likely produces a more specific motivational state, akin to craving...

    Gorica D Petrovich
    Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland 21218, USA
    J Neurosci 25:8295-302. 2005
