Gut Hormones, Metabolism, Appetite, and Obesity

Physiological mechanisms controlling the central nuclei and the gastrointestinal motor, digestive, absorptive, and endocrine functions contribute to sensations of appetite and satiation. They are increasingly recognized as important factors in the development of obesity. Studies of appetite, satiation, and obesity, using physiological principles, are of great interest to readers of the American Journal of Physiology-Gastrointestinal and Liver Physiology.
