  • For the record, while eroticism is a mystery, Komisaruk and his lab team found that an orgasm involves a variety of brain regions, including the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus; amygdala; accumbens-bed nucleus of the stria terminalis-preoptic area; hippocampus; basal ganglia; cerebellum; the anterior cingulate, insular, parietal and frontal cortices; and the lower brainstem.

  • We have also assessed behavioural and cell-signalling responses to exogenous leptin and the density of immunoreactivity for orexigenic and anorexigenic peptides in the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVH) prior to the onset of hyperphagia.

  • Other studies on experimental animals indicate that nutritional imbalance during pregnancy and lactation may lead to permanent modification of food intake due to developmental plasticity in the hypothalamus Studies on genetically hyperphagic (ob/ob) mice have demonstrated a neurotrophic role for leptin in the development of projections from the arcuate nucleus (ARC) to the hypothalamic paraventricular (PVH) nucleus

  • Representative brightfield images (A) and quantitative comparisons (B, C) of AgRP-immunoreactivity in the paraventricular hypothalamic nucleus (PVH) and its subdivisions in male offspring of control and obese dams.

  • At postnatal Day 30, before the onset of hyperphagia in these animals, serum leptin is normal, but leptin-induced appetite suppression and phosphorylation of STAT3 in the arcuate nucleus (ARC) are attenuated; the level of AgRP-immunoreactivity in the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVH), which derives from neurones in the ARC and is developmentally dependent on leptin, is also diminished.
