2/28/10 Summary: Regulation of Food Intake 1. Satiety centre – Arc-VMH. 2. Hormone leptin from fat tissue acts at satiety centre to inhibit NPY neurons (NPY neurons normally stimulate food intake) and activate POMC neurons (inhibitory for food intake). 3. Damage to satiety centre causes obesity. 4. Feeding Centre – LH-PVH (damage causes anorexia). 5. Feeding Hormone- orexin (hypocretin)-found in Lateral Hypothalamic neurons. 6. Satiety Centre reciprocally connected with Feeding Centre. 7. Eating disorders are thought to be a combination of genetic, neurochemical, psycho-developmental, and socio
