Central Effector Pathways for Control of Energy Homeostasis A large number of transmitters acting in a variety of brain areas are implicated in the control of food intake and/ or energy expenditure. The picture that emerges from an overview of these studies is that there are discrete neural pathways in the hypothalamus and elsewhere that, when activated, can influence potently the state of energy balance. In many cases, the activation of a discrete hypothalamic pathway can elicit several different behavioral and autonomic responses, each of which facilitates a unidirectional change in energy balance.

2. Additional evidence for regulation of body adiposity derives from the study of conditions in which the rate of energy expenditure is increased. ;! U Gl>. U -200 Q_ -5 -300 1- -400 Fig. 2. (A) Effect of overfeeding by gatrostomy tube on daily body weight (closed circles) and intake of a liquid diet (open circles) in macaques. Solid bar represents the period of overfeeding (from ref. 20). (B) Effect of over- and underfeeding on energy expenditure in human subjects. Data are expressed as observed minus expected kcal/ d, based on the relationship between total energy expenditure and fat-free mass (from ref.

Both basal and stimulated insulin secretion vary directly in proportion to body adiposity (56,58,73). Evidence for this comes from a variety of a mammalian species and is particularly clear from the results of Polonsky (Fig. 5) (58,73). His experiments showed that whereas 24-h plasma glucose profiles were nearly identical between lean and obese humans, obese subjects had 24-h insulin profiles approximately twice as great, and the derived insulin secretory rate varied as a linear function of body adiposity.
