This volume presents the first detailed account of the neurobiological mechanisms of satiation. The ten chapters of the book detail the neural, endocrine, and cellular underpinnings of the process. Authors expert in different aspects of satiation have compiled a critical overview of recentadvances and current problems in this field. Recent scientific evidence has revealed that food stimuli activate satiation before the actual absorption of digested food--a significant change to the traditional perspective that satiation depends on the post-absorptive repletion of metabolic fuels. Theinclusion of a chapter on the satiation of alcohol is unique in a book on food intake, and shows the convergence of ideas on satiation in these two areas. Comprehensive in scope and accessible to a wide array of advanced students and professionals, Satiation: From Gut to Brain is an authoritativeand up-to-date review of every aspect of this important physiological process. Although intended primarily for neuroscientists, nutritionists, and psychobiologists, the book will also be useful for physiologists, pharmacologists, and psychologists concerned with eating and its disorders.
