Food and Drink/Metabolism
Assessment of metabolic responses is particularly relevant in the field of obesity investigation. They are also modulated in many conditions, such as disease or stress.
Estimation of metabolic heat production is a technique broadly used to study mechanisms of energy intake and expenditure in obesity, anorexia or diabetes rodent models.
Studies to define the role of brain and molecular mechanisms in regulating food and drink intake are essential to understand major health problems such as obesity and alcoholism. Precise monitoring of food and drink intake is also necessary to evaluate fine alterations of these functions in response to treatments, brain lesions or in transgenic animals.
