Overview

This edited volume brings together research from many disciplines to integrate current knowledge of the control of appetite. The ten chapters include a discussion of central and periferal neurotransmitters and how they are related to appetite control, animal models of appetitive behavior (including the interaction of nutritional factors and drug-seeking behavior), and clinical situations in which appetite control is altered (including pregnancy and lactation, cancer, anorexia nervosa, and bulimia). Also covered are the pharmacological modification of appetite, the satiating effect of cholecystokinin, and psychological factors in the control of appetite.
