Endocrinologists and other specialists from Europe and North America contribute 14 articles on how the gut and the brain communicate in the regulation of metabolism. They discuss aspects of metabolic interplay between the brain and the gut, including hormonal control of metabolism, the blood-brain barrier as a regulator, the modulation of insulin sensitivity in multiple tissues, the role of sleep in metabolism, gut bacteria, the brain-stomach connection, Prader-Willi syndrome as a model for human hyperphagia, and interactions between the gut, brain, and brown adipose tissue function; smell and taste receptors and their role in metabolism; and the role of neuropeptides, including PYY (protein tyrosine-tyrosine), nutropoids, and proghrelin-derived peptides.
