Mice brain cells change shape after a meal impacting satiety

Researchers from the CNRS, Inrae, University of Burgundy, Université de Paris, Inserm and University of Luxembourg have just revealed the mechanisms in the brain that lead to feelings of satiety after eating – and involve a series of reactions triggered by a rise in blood glucose levels.  The study, ‘Postprandial Hyperglycemia Stimulates Neuroglial Plasticity in Hypothalamic POMC Neurons after a Balanced Meal’,  which was conducted on mice, was published in Cell Reports.
