  • satiety
  • Hunger and satiety are sensations . (wikipedia.org)
  • In a study published in the August issue of the journal Neuron, published by Cell Press, researchers at Duke University Medical Center, Ivan de Araujo and colleagues, have mapped the activity of whole groups of neurons involved in hunger-satiety-hunger cycle in multiple feeding-related brain areas. (medindia.net)
  • Until now studies of brain structures involved in the hunger/satiety cycle have been only fragmentary measuring brain regions only at specific times in the feeding cycle, but the findings of this study would open the way to understanding how groups of neurons integrate to form distributed "code" that governs the motivation that drives organisms to satisfy their hunger. (medindia.net)
  • The researchers found that they could, indeed, distinguish neurons that were sensitive to changes in satiety states as the animals satisfied their hunger. (medindia.net)
  • Araujo and colleagues concluded that their analysis showed that while single neurons were preferentially responsive to particular phases in the metabolic status of the animal as it went through a hunger-satiety-hunger cycle, "when combined as groups, however, these neurons gained the ability to provide a population code that allows for predictions on the current behavioral state (hunger/satiety) of the animal by integrating information conveyed by its constituent units. (medindia.net)
  • This can be achieved simply by understanding the fullness factor, glycemic index and satiety index, which are all related to the hunger stimulus. (medindia.net)
  • increases
  • The 2008 worldwide financial crisis further increased the number of people suffering from hunger, including dramatic increases even in advanced economies such as Great Britain, the Eurozone and the United States. (wikipedia.org)
  • Famines
  • Since the publication of Susan George's book How the Other Half Dies and Amartya Sen's Poverty and Famines it has been widely accepted that hunger is caused not by an absolute lack of food, but the inequities of its distribution. (commondreams.org)
  • awareness

  • signals
  • Hunger is the way the body signals that it needs to eat. (kidshealth.org)
  • Stretch receptors work to inhibit appetite upon distention of the GI tract by sending signals along the vagus nerve afferent pathway and inhibiting the hunger center. (wikipedia.org)
  • levels
  • Levels of hunger are increased by lower blood sugar levels, and are higher in diabetics . (wikipedia.org)
  • Blood levels of glucose, amino acids, and fatty acids provide a constant flow of information to the brain that may be linked to regulating hunger and energy intake. (wikipedia.org)
  • High levels of hunger are seen in states that are performing well from an economic perspective. (wikipedia.org)
  • Politics
  • This new look at hunger examines politics and biology in the context of evolution to determine what role they play in world famine. (dartmouth.edu)
  • With an emphasis on the interaction between biology and politics, the authors provide a constructive, evidence-based, and comprehensive analysis of hunger in all its dimensions. (dartmouth.edu)
  • It weaves history, politics, and science in a way that makes for a spellbinding story of why hunger is so prevalent and-as the authors say-one of our silent emergencies. (dartmouth.edu)
  • In politics, humanitarian aid, and social science, hunger is a condition in which a person, for a sustained period, is unable to eat sufficient food to meet basic nutritional needs. (wikipedia.org)
