Lessons in the Interactions of Hormones and Ingestive Behavior

Stephen C Woods. Physiol Behav.

Abstract

Research by Jim Gibbs and Gerry Smith from the Bourne Laboratory in the early 1970s demonstrated that peptide signals from the digestive system, especially cholecystokinin (CCK), have a profound effect on ingestive behavior. My laboratory consequently pursued a parallel course with the hormone insulin. Integrating the research on meal-generated signals, such as CCK, with adiposity-indicating signals, such as insulin, has progressed a long way, thanks in large part to suggestions and inputs from Gerry Smith along the way. This short article documents that progress.
