  1. ncbi request reprint Acute third ventricular administration of insulin decreases food intake in two paradigms
    Ellen L Air
    Department of Biomedical Sciences, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH 45267, USA
    Pharmacol Biochem Behav 72:423-9. 2002
    ..These data suggest that insulin can reduce food intake in acute delivery paradigms and provide another means by which to assess the roles of other central systems in the mediation of insulin's effects on energy homeostasis...
  2. ncbi request reprint Increased dietary fat attenuates the anorexic effects of intracerebroventricular injections of MTII
    Deborah J Clegg
    Department of Psychiatry, University of Cincinnati Medical Center, PO Box 670559, Cincinnati, OH 45267 0559, USA
    Endocrinology 144:2941-6. 2003
    ..These results indicate that consumption of a HF diet decreases signaling through the melanocortin system, an abnormality that could contribute to diet-induced obesity...
  3. ncbi request reprint Two novel paradigms for the simultaneous assessment of conditioned taste aversion and food intake effects of anorexic agents
    Stephen C Benoit
    Department of Psychiatry, University of Cincinnati Medical Center, P O Box 670559, Cincinnati, OH 45267, USA
    Physiol Behav 79:761-6. 2003
    ..These results suggest that both the appetitive and aversive consequences of anorexic agents can be assessed simultaneously during either acute or chronic drug administration...
  4. ncbi request reprint The catabolic action of insulin in the brain is mediated by melanocortins
    Stephen C Benoit
    Department of Psychiatry, University of Cincinnati, College of Medicine, Cincinnati, Ohio 45267 0559, USA
    J Neurosci 22:9048-52. 2002
    ..These data suggest that the hypothalamic melanocortin system mediates the anorexic effects of central insulin, as well as of leptin...

    Deborah J Clegg
    Department of Psychiatry, University of Cincinnati, Ohio 45267, USA
    Am J Physiol Regul Integr Comp Physiol 284:R494-9. 2003
    ..Hence, in contrast to AgRP, MCH elicits increased water intake independent of food intake. These results are consistent with historical data linking activity of the LH with water as well as food intake...
  7. ncbi request reprint Small molecule insulin mimetics reduce food intake and body weight and prevent development of obesity
    Ellen L Air
    Department of Biomedical Sciences and Cell Biology, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA
    Nat Med 8:179-83. 2002
    ..Thus, insulin mimetics have a unique advantage over insulin in the control of body weight and hold potential as a novel anti-obesity treatment...

    Paul A Rushing
    Department of Psychiatry, College of Medicine, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH 45267 0559, USA
    Peptides 23:985-8. 2002

    Endocrinology 143:2995-3000. 2002
    ..These data indicate that despite several similarities between MCH and orexin-A, these two lateral hypothalamic area peptides stimulate food intake by recruiting different neural circuits and exert different effects on food choice...
