Research output: Contribution to journalLiterature reviewpeer-review


Aversive visceral stimuli, such as those associated with sickness, suppress appetite. Yet an understanding of the neural mechanisms underlying illness-related anorexia has remained elusive. Carter et al. (2013) now identify a specific hindbrain → amygdala circuit that contributes to illness-induced loss of appetite.
