Neural and Metabolic Control of Macronutrient Intake systematically di scusses the known physiological mechanisms involved in macronutrientse lection, including their molecular, genetic and neurochemical aspects. The book is also a critical review of the hypothesis that ingestion o f the three nutrients is regulated by separate neural control mechanis ms, leaving open the possibility that strategies could be devised to i ntervene in bodily control systems and alter the proportion of fat in the diet.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

This is an excellent reference for research on macronutrient selection in animal models and human nutrition. It is useful to neuropharmacologists, neurochemists, nutritionists, biochemists, phsiologists, and neurobehavioralists.
