Dopamine subsystems that track internal statesNature_0

James C. R. Grove et al.
Nature | July 13, 2022
Food and water are rewarding in part because they satisfy our internal needs. Dopaminergic neurons in the ventral tegmental area (VTA) are activated by gustatory rewards, but how animals learn to associate these oral...

Network dynamics of hypothalamic feeding neuronsPNAS

Patrick Sweeney et al.
PNAS | April 6, 2021
Paraventricular nucleus (PVN) neurons expressing the melanocortin 4 receptor (MC4R) integrate hormonal and neuronal information concerning energy availability and engage neural circuitry controlling feeding, metabolism,...

Satb2 neurons in the parabrachial nucleus mediate taste perceptionNature Communications_1

Brooke C. Jarvie et al.
Nature Communications | January 11, 2021
The neural circuitry mediating taste has been mapped out from the periphery to the cortex, but genetic identity of taste-responsive neurons has remained elusive. Here, we describe a population of neurons in the...
