GABAergic excitatory synapses and electrical coupling sustain prolonged discharges in the prey capture neural network of Clione limacina. (1/7142)

Afterdischarges represent a prominent characteristic of the neural network that controls prey capture reactions in the carnivorous mollusc Clione limacina. Their main functional implication is transformation of a brief sensory input from a prey into a lasting prey capture response. The present study, which focuses on the neuronal mechanisms of afterdischarges, demonstrates that a single pair of interneurons [cerebral A interneuron (Cr-Aint)] is responsible for afterdischarge generation in the network. Cr-Aint neurons are electrically coupled to all other neurons in the network and produce slow excitatory synaptic inputs to them. This excitatory transmission is found to be GABAergic, which is demonstrated by the use of GABA antagonists, uptake inhibitors, and double-labeling experiments showing that Cr-Aint neurons are GABA-immunoreactive. The Cr-Aint neurons organize three different pathways in the prey capture network, which provide positive feedback necessary for sustaining prolonged spike activity. The first pathway includes electrical coupling and slow chemical transmission from the Cr-Aint neurons to all other neurons in the network. The second feedback is based on excitatory reciprocal connections between contralateral interneurons. Recurrent excitation via the contralateral cell can sustain prolonged interneuron firing, which then drives the activity of all other cells in the network. The third positive feedback is represented by prominent afterdepolarizing potentials after individual spikes in the Cr-Aint neurons. Afterdepolarizations apparently represent recurrent GABAergic excitatory inputs. It is suggested here that these afterdepolarizing potentials are produced by GABAergic excitatory autapses.  (+info)

Descriptive analysis of eating regulation in obese and nonobese children. (2/7142)

Bite rate, sip rate, and concurrent activities of six 7-yr-old children, three obese and three nonobese, were observed at lunchtime over a six-month period. A procedure for decreasing bite rate, putting eating utensils down between bites, was implemented in a multiple-baseline across-subjects design. Sip rates and concurrent activities were observed to assess behavioral covariations. In addition, bite rate and amount of food completed were computed over six food categories to analyze food preferences. Results indicated the control of bite rate acorss all subjects, with a significant reduction in amount of food consumed. Correlations between the response classes indicated they were at least partially independent. Differences in eating behavior of obese and nonobese subjects were observed for breadstuffs and milk drinking.  (+info)

Viral gene delivery selectively restores feeding and prevents lethality of dopamine-deficient mice. (3/7142)

Dopamine-deficient mice (DA-/- ), lacking tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) in dopaminergic neurons, become hypoactive and aphagic and die by 4 weeks of age. They are rescued by daily treatment with L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (L-DOPA); each dose restores dopamine (DA) and feeding for less than 24 hr. Recombinant adeno-associated viruses expressing human TH or GTP cyclohydrolase 1 (GTPCH1) were injected into the striatum of DA-/- mice. Bilateral coinjection of both viruses restored feeding behavior for several months. However, locomotor activity and coordination were partially improved. A virus expressing only TH was less effective, and one expressing GTPCH1 alone was ineffective. TH immunoreactivity and DA were detected in the ventral striatum and adjacent posterior regions of rescued mice, suggesting that these regions mediate a critical DA-dependent aspect of feeding behavior.  (+info)

C-PR neuron of Aplysia has differential effects on "Feeding" cerebral interneurons, including myomodulin-positive CBI-12. (4/7142)

Head lifting and other aspects of the appetitive central motive state that precedes consummatory feeding movements in Aplysia is promoted by excitation of the C-PR neuron. Food stimuli activate C-PR as well as a small population of cerebral-buccal interneurons (CBIs). We wished to determine if firing of C-PR produced differential effects on the various CBIs or perhaps affected all the CBIs uniformly as might be expected for a neuron involved in producing a broad undifferentiated arousal state. We found that when C-PR was fired, it produced a wide variety of effects on various CBIs. Firing of C-PR evoked excitatory input to a newly identified CBI (CBI-12) the soma of which is located in the M cluster near the previously identified CBI-2. CBI-12 shares certain properties with CBI-2, including a similar morphology and a capacity to drive rhythmic activity of the buccal-ganglion. Unlike CBI-2, CBI-12 exhibits myomodulin immunoreactivity. Furthermore when C-PR is fired, CBI-12 receives a polysynaptic voltage-dependent slow excitation, whereas, CBI-2 receives relatively little input. C-PR also polysynaptically excites other CBIs including CBI-1 and CBI-8/9 but produces inhibition in CBI-3. In addition, firing of C-PR inhibits plateau potentials in CBI-5/6. The data suggest that activity of C-PR may promote the activity of one subset of cerebral-buccal interneurons, perhaps those involved in ingestive behaviors that occur during the head-up posture. C-PR also inhibits some cerebral-buccal interneurons that may be involved in behaviors in which C-PR activity is not required or may even interfere with other feeding behaviors such as rejection or grazing, that occur with the head down.  (+info)

In vitro analog of operant conditioning in aplysia. I. Contingent reinforcement modifies the functional dynamics of an identified neuron. (5/7142)

Previously, an analog of operant conditioning in Aplysia was developed using the rhythmic motor activity in the isolated buccal ganglia. This analog expressed a key feature of operant conditioning, namely a selective enhancement in the occurrence of a designated motor pattern by contingent reinforcement. Different motor patterns generated by the buccal central pattern generator were induced by monotonic stimulation of a peripheral nerve (i.e., n.2,3). Phasic stimulation of the esophageal nerve (E n.) was used as an analog of reinforcement. The present study investigated the neuronal mechanisms associated with the genesis of different motor patterns and their modifications by contingent reinforcement. The genesis of different motor patterns was related to changes in the functional states of the pre-motor neuron B51. During rhythmic activity, B51 dynamically switched between inactive and active states. Bursting activity in B51 was associated with, and predicted, characteristic features of a specific motor pattern (i.e., pattern I). Contingent reinforcement of pattern I modified the dynamical properties of B51 by decreasing its resting conductance and threshold for eliciting plateau potentials and thus increased the occurrences of pattern I-related activity in B51. These modifications were not observed in preparations that received either noncontingent reinforcement (i.e., yoke control) or no reinforcement (i.e., control). These results suggest that a contingent reinforcement paradigm can regulate the dynamics of neuronal activity that is centrally programmed by the intrinsic cellular properties of neurons.  (+info)

Mechanisms of arthropod transmission of plant and animal viruses. (6/7142)

A majority of the plant-infecting viruses and many of the animal-infecting viruses are dependent upon arthropod vectors for transmission between hosts and/or as alternative hosts. The viruses have evolved specific associations with their vectors, and we are beginning to understand the underlying mechanisms that regulate the virus transmission process. A majority of plant viruses are carried on the cuticle lining of a vector's mouthparts or foregut. This initially appeared to be simple mechanical contamination, but it is now known to be a biologically complex interaction between specific virus proteins and as yet unidentified vector cuticle-associated compounds. Numerous other plant viruses and the majority of animal viruses are carried within the body of the vector. These viruses have evolved specific mechanisms to enable them to be transported through multiple tissues and to evade vector defenses. In response, vector species have evolved so that not all individuals within a species are susceptible to virus infection or can serve as a competent vector. Not only are the virus components of the transmission process being identified, but also the genetic and physiological components of the vectors which determine their ability to be used successfully by the virus are being elucidated. The mechanisms of arthropod-virus associations are many and complex, but common themes are beginning to emerge which may allow the development of novel strategies to ultimately control epidemics caused by arthropod-borne viruses.  (+info)

Lateral hypothalamic NMDA receptor subunits NR2A and/or NR2B mediate eating: immunochemical/behavioral evidence. (7/7142)

Cells within the lateral hypothalamic area (LHA) are important in eating control. Glutamate or its analogs, kainic acid (KA) and N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA), elicit intense eating when microinjected there, and, conversely, LHA-administered NMDA receptor antagonists suppress deprivation- and NMDA-elicited eating. The subunit composition of LHA NMDA receptors (NMDA-Rs) mediating feeding, however, has not yet been determined. Identifying this is important, because distinct second messengers/modulators may be activated by NMDA-Rs with differing compositions. To begin to address this, we detected LHA NR2A and NR2B subunits by immunoblotting and NR2B subunits by immunohistochemistry using subunit-specific antibodies. To help determine whether NMDA-Rs mediating feeding might contain these subunits, we conducted behavioral studies using LHA-administered ifenprodil, an antagonist selective for NR2A- and/or NR2B-containing NMDA-Rs at the doses we used (0.001-100 nmol). Ifenprodil maximally suppressed NMDA- and deprivation-elicited feeding by 63 and 39%, respectively, but failed to suppress KA-elicited eating, suggesting its actions were behaviorally specific. Collectively, these results suggest that LHA NMDA-Rs, some of which contribute to feeding control, are composed of NR2A and/or NR2B subunits, and implicate NR2A- and/or NR2B-linked signal transduction in feeding behavior.  (+info)

Variation in oral susceptibility to dengue type 2 virus of populations of Aedes aegypti from the islands of Tahiti and Moorea, French Polynesia. (8/7142)

Twenty three samples of Aedes aegypti populations from the islands of Tahiti and Moorea (French Polynesia) were tested for their oral susceptibility to dengue type 2 virus. The high infection rates obtained suggest that the artificial feeding protocol used was more efficient than those previously described. Statistical analysis of the results allowed us to define two distinct geographic areas on Tahiti with respect to the susceptibility of Ae. aegypti: the east coast, with homogeneous infection rates, and the west coast, with heterogeneous infection rates. No geographic differences could be demonstrated on Moorea. The possible mechanisms of this phenomenon are discussed in connection with recent findings on the variability of susceptibility of Ae. aegypti to insecticides.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - Investigating the influence of threat appraisals and social support on healthy eating behavior and drive for thinness.. AU - McKinley, Christopher J.. PY - 2009/12. Y1 - 2009/12. N2 - This study examined the relationship between perceived obesity threats, social support, and college students eating attitudes and behaviors. Results showed that perceived vulnerability to obesity negatively predicted healthy eating behavior. In addition, the perceived severity of obesity-related health problems positively predicted womens drive for thinness. Social support played a significant role in explaining health behaviors. Specifically, appraisal by others indirectly predicted college students healthy eating behavior through increased self-efficacy. Among women, informational support moderated the relationships between both vulnerability and severity on healthy eating behavior. At low levels of support, vulnerability and severity negatively predicted students healthy eating behavior. ...

The consequences of hysterectomy for a woman - one of the most discussed problems of modern gynecology. The aim of our study was to identify differences in the general health and feeding behavior of patients with severe manifestation or progression of obesity without such after undergoing a hysterectomy with preservation of ovaries. The study included 34 women 5 years after a hysterectomy without appendages or fallopian tubes. At the time of the study age was 46,4 ± 3,2 years. The study group included 22 women who reported an increase in the period of time after the surgery the body weight of 10-25 kg (14 ± 3,2). The control group consisted of 12 women whose weight for the period was stable or increased by no more than 3 kg. The study included a survey, the general clinical examination, testing the questionnaire assessment of eating behavior (Dutch eating behavior questionnaire (DEBQ) 1986). Also perform electroencephalography. Symptoms that are highly likely to indicate a hypothalamic ...
Taste is involved in food preference and choice, and it is thought that it can modulate appetite and food intake. The present study investigated the effect of savory or sweet taste on satiation, reward, and food intake and according to individual differences in eating behavior traits underlying susceptibility to overeating. In a crossover design, 30 women (BMI = 22.7 ± 2.3; age = 21.9 ± 2.6 y) consumed a fixed energy preload (360 kJ/g) with a savory, sweet, or bland taste before selecting and consuming items from a test meal ad libitum. Sensations of hunger were used to calculate the satiating efficiency of the preloads. A computerized task was used to examine effects on food reward (explicit liking and implicit wanting). The Three Factor Eating Questionnaire was used to compare individual differences in eating behavior traits. Satiation and total food intake did not differ according to preload taste, but there was an effect on explicit liking and food selection. The savory preload reduced ...
The target article addresses increased food-seeking behaviors in times of instability, particularly in passerines.

The FTO minor allele at rs9939609 has been associated with body mass index (BMI: weight (kg)/height (m)2) in children from 5 years onwards, food intake, and eating behaviour. The high expression of FTO in the brain suggests that this gene may also be associated with behavioural phenotypes, such as impulsivity and control. We examined the effect of the FTO minor allele (A) at rs9939609 on eating behaviour, impulsivity and control in young children, thus before the BMI effect becomes apparent. This study was embedded in the Generation R Study, a population-based cohort from fetal life onwards. 1,718 children of European descent were genotyped for FTO at rs9939609. With logistic regression assuming an additive genetic model, we examined the association between the FTO minor allele and eating behaviour, impulsivity and control in preschool children. There was no relation between FTO at rs9939609 and child BMI at this age. The A allele at rs9939609 was associated with increased food responsiveness (OR 1.21,
The purpose of the program was to determine if a 4-week group nutrition education series held at the worksite, focusing on eating behaviors can positively affect dietary behaviors that are associated with risk of chronic disease(s) related blood lipid parameters.

Before and after the program all participants completed fasting bloodwork (total cholesterol, TC; low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, LDL-C; high density lipoprotein cholesterol, HDL-C; triglycerides, TG) and diet records.. ...
Illness-induced anorexia is one of the most commonly reported symptoms of infection in host-parasite systems [13-17, 31]. Why such behavior should occur is unclear. Dietary restriction is generally thought to extend lifespan [48-50], and in Drosophila, anorexia induced by infection has been shown to increase tolerance to pathogens [17]. In other insects, temporary down regulation of feeding has also been demonstrated to increase the ability of hosts to resist and survive infection [16, 31, 33]. Modulating behavior in the face of infection may be adaptive if these benefits to survival result in overall enhanced fitness. Here we tested whether known restricted blood-feeding behaviors observed in malaria-infected mosquitoes [1-5, 9, 51] provide fitness benefits, suggestive of adaptation. To do this, we presented the first quantification of the impact restricted feeding behaviors have on a composite measure of mosquito fitness and determined that restricted feeding increased survival and decreased ...

NÉMETH Tünde, VÁRADY Erzsébet, DANIS Ildikó, SCHEURING Noémi, SZABÓ László. [Feeding and eating in infancy and early childhood part III. - Development of self-feeding skills in the large-sample of the For Healthy Offspring project INTRODUCTION - After introducing adequate complementary food to the diet of breastfed/formula-fed babies, the frequency and amount of semisolid/solid food is increasing, the breastmilk/formula intake is decreasing and finally the weaning process is completed. During this process the developing feeding skills of the infant enables them to self-feed. The self-feeding infant and toddler should participate in family meals. SUBJECTS AND METHODS - In the Healthy Offspring project self reported questionnaires were received from 1133 parents of 0-3 year old children. Issues concerning the development of self-feeding skills were analyzed. RESULTS - With advancing age the proportion of infants/toddlers, reported to be able to (partially) self-feed, has increased.

Young people may have most of their nutrition needs met while they are in school, but with childhood obesity growing rampantly; its time to take a look at what they eat when theyre not in school. Youth programs have a unique opportunity to influence kids eating habits. Children and teens lead quite busy and stressed lives with their school workload, after-school activities and family responsibilities. They consequently may skip breakfast, eat from vending machines and consume more fast food. By providing them with healthy eating behaviors, youth programs can help kids learn how to fuel their boding some cases, the daily intake recommendations for some nutrients are higher for teens than adults. Youth programs can take great strides toward meeting their needs by ensuring the food they serve is rich with these nutrients. Youll also help them develop an appreciation for properly fueling their bodies. For example, the Institute of Medicine says teens ages 14 to 18 need more calcium than adults, ...

For the 12 rats, the average time from the blood sampling to the onset of the first meal was 3.6 ± 1.0 min so that the second samples were taken ∼6.4 min into the meal. A similar time period applies to the VMH samples. Defined in this way, beginning at ∼3.6 min before the first meal, statistically significant changes in blood glucose levels occurred in blood and VMH but in opposite directions. Blood levels fell in 8 of 12 rats by 7.5%, whereas VMH levels rose significantly in 9 of 12 rats by 8.5% (Table 2, Fig. 2). When the time period of observation was extended to include the 10 min before the 3.6 min time point before the first meal, there were no significant increases or decreases in blood or VMH glucose levels beginning ∼13.6 min before and continuing ∼6.4 min into the first meal.. Blood sampling and VMH glucose determinations occurred 4.7 ± 0.9 min preceding the second spontaneous meal. Data for the second spontaneous meals are summarized in Tables 1 and 2. When the data for the ...

Well, I am glad you are at a low body fat now, I had assumed you were just a regular young person who has never had a weight problem, based on your inability to relate to the fact that some people do grow obese based on the type of foods they eat... perhaps it is all a language barrier as I assume your primary language is spanish. There are a lot of ways to get your metabolism in order, and one daily meal of crap, is certainly much better than multiple meals of crap, because you have 23 hours to use glycogen and body fat and keep insulin low. But, meh, we are all different. Arguging for intermittent fasting is basically arguing for low carb anyway. Its a different approach to handle the same problem (do not use glucose normally - do not make insulin normally ... solution: eat glucose once per day, deal with one insulin surge, do not eat again until the next day ...
Some claim that you should always count calories of what you eat while the others cant stop talking about the carbs/fats/protein ratio. We would say that both strategies are beneficial. For starters, in order to lose weight, you should burn more calories than you consume. 10% deficit per day is enough for safe weight loss - about 1 kilo per week.. At the same time, counting calories only, you may consume more carbs or fats than you actually need. That is why it is important to take carbs/fats/protein ratio into account when planning your meal for the next day. The proper ratio of these nutrients for bodybuilders is 40-60% / 15-25% / 25-35% respectively. If you maintain muscles, it will be 30-50% / 25-35% / 25-35%. Finally, the daily meal of those who are losing fat should contain only 10-30% of carbs, 30-40% of fats, and 40-50% of protein.. Carbs should never go below 10% since their presence in our diet is crucial, as well as fats, by the way. Their amount shouldnt fall below 15%. It is ...

This is actually reminiscent of The China Study, where they fed the animals a huge quantity of casein (an isolated protein in milk). A large proportion of the animals developed cancer. The authors concluded that animal products cause cancer. This is a problem in so many ways - casein is an isolated nutrient that no one would ever consume on its own. It would be part of a whole food (milk) and so the milk-cancer link cannot be drawn from such a study. Many studies have similar flaws in that they feed animals ridiculous isolated nutrients, or extremely processed foods (e.g. the studies that show saturated fat is bad for you often use hydrogenated fats) and therefore are not representative of a human eating a whole-food diet ...

The longitudinal stability of eating problems and their relationships to risk factors were investigated in a representative population sample of 623 Norwegian girls aged 13-14 followed over 7 years (3 time points). Three eating problem symptoms were measured: Restriction, Bulimia-food preoccupation, and Diet, all taken from the 12-item Eating Attitudes Test. The aim of the study was to investigate the stability of these eating problem symptoms both as separate components (as opposed to total symptom load) as well as from a syndrome perspective. Over 7 years, dieting behavior showed the highest correlational stability (0.32). Regarding stable eating problem syndromes, at all 3 time points, 1 group of girls with generalized eating problems was found, characterized by simultaneously pronounced bulimic tendencies and dieting. However, we did not establish individual stability across 7 years for this syndrome group. Through development, eating problem symptoms were associated with characteristic risk ...
Eating self-regulatory capacity can help individuals to cope with the obesogenic environment and achieve, as well as maintain, a healthy weight and diet. At present, there is no comprehensive, reliable and valid questionnaire for assessing this capacity and measuring change in response to self-regulation interventions in adults. This paper reports the development of the Self-regulation of Eating Behaviour Questionnaire (SREBQ) for use in UK adults, and presents evidence for its reliability and construct validity. The development of the SREBQ involved generation of an item pool, followed by two pilot studies (Samples 1 and 2) and a test of the questionnaires underlying factor structure (Sample 3). The final version of the SREBQ was then assessed for reliability and construct validity (Sample 4). Development of the SREBQ resulted in a 5-item questionnaire. The face validity was satisfactory, as assessed by the pilot studies. The factor structure analysis (Sample 3) suggested that it has a single

The present study also examined if there were differences in perceived motivators of and barriers to healthy eating behaviors in association with gender and race/ethnicity. Specifically, the healthy eating behaviors assessed in this study include (a) eating foods and snacks that are lower in fat and calories; and (b) eating fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Participants were 37 children between the ages of 9 and 12 years old who were from families with an annual household income of 40,000 dollars or less. These children participated in one of six gender- and race/ethnicity- concordant focus groups that were conducted at various community sites and led by trained focus group leaders of the same gender and race/ethnicity as the focus group?s participants. ...
Available research has shown a relationship between emotional intelligence (EI) and health behaviors. However, the link between EI and eating behaviors has not been well explained. Thus, the purpose of this study was to investigate the correlations among EI, eating behaviors, as measured by the Dutch Eating Behavior Questionnaire (DEBQ), and body mass index (BMI) in college students. One hundred and eighty four students (118 (64%) female, 66 (36%) male, average BMI = 23.8kg/m2) were recruited to complete an online survey. The survey consisted of basic demographic questions, academic information with grade point average (GPA), ACT and SAT scores, a 19-item Self-Rated EI Scale, and 18-item Consumer EI Scale (CEIS) and the 33-item DEBQ. BMI was computed using self-report data. Results showed that the overall SREIS and the understanding emotions subscale were positively correlated with BMI. Both the SREIS and CEIS managing emotions subscales were correlated with eating behavior. GPA was correlated with BMI
Abstract: Effective diet-based interventions targeting youth at risk for developing hypertension (HTN) require understanding adolescent meal patterns and their relation to HTN. The purpose of this research was to determine usual meal patterns of African American adolescents and how these vary by gender and HTN risk status. Specific aims were: develop a method to visually represent meal patterns; describe differences in meal patterns between participants of differing genders and HTN risk categories; and explore relationships between meal patterns and systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP) and body mass index (BMI). Fifty-eight African Americans (ages 17-20, 30F) at either high- (n=29) or low-risk (n=29) of developing HTN were interviewed about their week-day eating and activities. The Diet History Questionnaire (DHQ) was used to estimate intake of select foods and nutrients associated with blood pressure (BP). Height, weight, and BP were measured. A daily timeline for each ...

About half of the females reported dieting in the past year compared to about a fourth of the males. The prevalence of dieting remained fairly constant from adolescence through young adulthood for females in both age groups. Among males, the prevalence of dieting stayed constant over time in the younger age cohort, but significantly increased in the older cohort as they progressed from middle adolescence to middle young adulthood (21.9% to 27.9%). In the younger females, unhealthy weight control behaviors remained constant from early adolescence to early young adulthood. Among older females, unhealthy weight control behaviors showed a statistically significant decrease from middle adolescence to middle young adulthood, but still remained very high (60.7% to 54.4%). Approximately one-third of males reported unhealthy weight control behaviors, and the prevalence remained fairly constant over the study period in both age cohorts ...
The demand for nutrition professionals to develop creative programs to improve childrens eating behavior is being driven by growing numbers of overweight children and lack of food and nutrition knowledge.

Weight control practices were prevalent among the study population. Although the use of healthy weight control behaviors was most commonly reported, significant percentages of females (37%) and males (15%) reported the use of unhealthy or very unhealthy behaviors. Of particular concern was the misuse of insulin for weight regulation, reported by 7-10% of the females. While prevalences of unhealthy weight control behaviors reported in this study are of concern, they were lower than those found in a recent large population-based survey of adolescents in the greater St. Paul/Minneapolis area, using similar questions (with the exception of insulin misuse) (24). Prevalences were also considerably lower than those found in an earlier population-based study of Minnesota youth who reported having diabetes (25), thus raising questions and concerns about the validity of making comparisons across studies, self-reported data on diabetes and on weight-control behaviors, and the representative nature of the ...

Body weight depends on equality between food intake and expenditures of nutrients and energy. This balance is largely achieved by controlling the intake of nutrients based on the size and frequency of meals. Intake is assessed by a pattern of signals eminating from the digestive tract as a meal is in progress. The characteristics of the food and the products of its digestion are used to inform the CNS continuously as to the amounts of nutrient ingested. This information is in the form of satiety signals that may be chemical signals or nerve impulses. As the meal proceeds, these satiety signals become progressively stronger, until they cause the meal to end at an appropriate size.

Millennials- In 2015 the Millennial generation is projected to surpass the Baby Boom generation as the nations largest living generation, according to the U.S. Census Bureau population projections. Based on its sheer size, as Millennials go so goes the food and foodservice industries. Millennials are driving changes in this countrys eating behaviors with their approach to food choice and preparation. They like fresh, less processed food, which has played out in their preference for fast casual restaurants that offer freshly prepared foods and shopping the perimeter of grocery stores where fresh and non-packaged foods can be found. This generation is in a life stage when they would, historically, visit restaurants more often than other age groups, but in recent years they have cut back to the point where 50+ year-olds go out more often than Millennials do. In addition, 65 percent of U.S. Hispanics, a growing population base, are Millennials or younger ...
The inhibition of GLUT2-mediated sugar detection increased food intake in GLUT2-SDD mice (line TgG) by enlarging meal sizes without changes in meal frequency. The decision to stop eating is delayed in conjunction with defects in arcuate c-Fos activation in response to glucose and changes in orexin and TRH neuropeptide mRNA levels in the hypothalamus of fed mice. Thus, GLUT2 receptor function, independent of sugar transport and metabolism, is involved in controlling feeding behavior.. GLUT2 plays a key role in glucodetection, which controls the feeding behavior in mice. Indeed, daily food intake is similarly increased in GLUT2-SDD (line TgG) and in GLUT2-null rescued (ripglut1;glut2−/−) mice (5), and in both mouse models, provision of glucose failed to reduce food intake. GLUT2-dependent sugar transport (except in pancreatic β-cells) and sugar detection were invalidated in GLUT2-null mice; by contrast, GLUT2-SDD mice lack only the receptor function, and thus sugar transport was still able to ...

Both species of the oxpecker bird differ slightly by their feeding habits, but mainly differing on what types of animals they choose to land upon and to be a host for their daily meals (Stutterheim et al. , 2000). The oxpecker bird has caused much conflict when it comes to its true relationships with animal hosts. It has been noticed to have both a mutualistic and parasitic relationships with the host they land upon (Stutterheim et al. , 2000).. With further exploration for information on this bird, we are able to determine what type of relationship is truly present in the oxpeckers daily interactions. The oxpecker bird spends most of its typical, normal day flying around and looking for a decently sized ungulate host to land upon or rest upon to begin its normal, everyday feeding process (Stutterheim et al. , 2000). Once the host animal has been located and the bird has landed, the oxpecker bird begins to remove and feast upon the invading ticks that are lingering on or are attached to the ...

  • To examine the extent to which aquatic prey-capture behavior in salamanders is stereotyped and how feeding kinematics scales with size, the ontogenetic variability of aquatic feeding behavior was examined in eight Salamandra salamandra. (biologists.org)
  • Feeding kinematics (seven duration and angular displacement variables), kinematic variance and capture performance were quantified and compared in the first several feedings after birth with a series of feedings 8 weeks later, just prior to metamorphosis. (biologists.org)
  • In addition, the lack of kinematic change through ontogeny indicates that feeding kinematics do not scale with body size, contrary to predictions that movements should be slower in larger animals. (biologists.org)
  • In that previous research, the investigators identified a method for psychotherapeutic intervention that consists of 3 components: (1) education regarding the toddler temperament, (2) addressing the parents' issues regarding eating and the setting of limits for the child, and (3) several specific guidelines for feeding. (medscape.com)
  • Although effects of parents' feeding practices on children's health have been studied often, most of the research has focused on preschool children rather than infants (Polfuss & Frenn, 2012), and few studies have addressed why parents decide to introduce solid foods when they do (Horodynski & Mills, 2014).

  • Additional research is needed to better understand why side-selling behavior differs between groups and to better understand how household head gender influences side selling. (msu.edu)
  • Future research should include qualitative methods to better understand motivations for side-selling behavior. (msu.edu)
  • Bergen Open Research Archive: Feeding behavior and bioenergetic balance of the great scallop (Pecten maximus) and the blue mussel (Mytilus edulis) in a low seston environment and relevance to suspended shellfish aquaculture. (uib.no)
  • Unfortunately, the majority of research on dairy cattle feeding behavior has been completed with individually housed animals. (milkproduction.com)
  • We found that feeding is reliably encoded by specific patterns of neuron activity and that these patterns are reactivated during rapid eye movement sleep. (pnas.org)
  • The class includes feeding cues for breast and bottle feeding, infant sleep patterns, comforting a crying infant, information about returning to work, continued support for breastfeeding moms, pumping techniques, and storage of breast milk. (eventbrite.com)
  • Nectar characteristics, patterns of secretion and availability, flower production, spatial arrangement, and morphological aspects of flowers and flower-visiting birds are important in order to understand the foraging behavior of birds on flowers (FEINSINGER & COLWELL 1978, WASER 1983, KEARNS & INOUYE 1993), as well as the consequences on pollen flow and seed set (MURCIA & FEINSINGER 1996, FRANCESCHINELLI & BAWA 2000).

  • In modern dairy operations, cows are group-housed, and this social environment can have a major effect on feeding patterns. (milkproduction.com)
  • Feeding may also be influenced by environmental cues, sensory inputs, and other behaviors, implying the involvement of higher brain regions. (jci.org)
  • Furthermore, these feeding (Fdg) neurons were responsible for synthesizing cues about available food and hunger, and using them to start the feeding mechanism. (medicalxpress.com)

  • Many owners can tell you about the effects that certain feeds or dietary components have on the behavior of certain horses. (horses-and-horse-information.com)
  • Fenfluramine's effects on feeding behavior and mRNA expression were blocked by PVN injections of a 5-HT(1-2) receptor antagonist, metergoline (15 nmol/0.5 μl/side). (sigmaaldrich.com)
  • Infant feeding practices will be assessed using before-after intervention-comparison area group differences between 2010, and 2013 and 2014. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Results indicated that parents' attitudes influenced infant feeding behavior at 6 months old. (joe.org)
  • Moreover, our sample relied heavily on health professionals, friends and family, and books or videos for infant feeding information, so Extension professionals should consider targeting other influential groups in addition to targeting parents directly. (joe.org)
