    Drosophila mushroom bodies integrate hunger and satiety signals to control innate food-seeking behavior

    Chang-Hui Tsao et al.
    Mushroom bodies are a hunger and satiety integrative center that controls food-seeking behavior in Drosophila..
    1. Neuroscience

    Organelle calcium-derived voltage oscillations in pacemaker neurons drive the motor program for food-seeking behavior in Aplysia

    Alexis Bédécarrats et al.
    An atypical neuronal pacemaker mechanism triggers feeding motor pattern in Aplysia..

    High-fat diet enhances starvation-induced hyperactivity via sensitizing hunger-sensing neurons in Drosophila

    Rui Huang et al.
    Fruit flies fed with high-fats diets are hyper-sensitive to a hunger hormone AKH and exhibit enhanced food-seeking behavior when starved.

    A vitamin-B2-sensing mechanism that regulates gut protease activity to impact animal’s food behavior and growth

    Bin Qi et al.
    The availability of an essential dietary micronutrient is evaluated by an intestinal signaling system that in turn regulates food-uptake and response behaviors by modulating protease expression.
    1. Neuroscience

    A bidirectional network for appetite control in larval zebrafish

    Caroline Lei Wee et al.
    Brain imaging and behavioral analysis reveal two opposing states of hunger, represented by anti-correlated lateral and caudal hypothalamic dynamics that are important for the homeostatic control of feeding in zebrafish.

    Shared behavioral mechanisms underlie C. elegans aggregation and swarming

    Siyu Serena Ding et al.
    Two seemingly distinct behaviors in social C. elegans worms, namely aggregating into groups and swarming over food, are driven by the same underlying mechanisms.
    1. Neuroscience

    The p75 neurotrophin receptor in AgRP neurons is necessary for homeostatic feeding and food anticipation

    Brandon Podyma et al.
    A novel neurotrophin signaling axis underpins a behavioral response to food scarcity.
    1. Neuroscience

    Internal states drive nutrient homeostasis by modulating exploration-exploitation trade-off

    Verónica María Corrales-Carvajal et al.
    A quantitative video tracking analysis reveals that to gain the nutrients they need, flies change their decisions to exploit foods with different nutrient contents and explore the environment according to their internal amino acid and reproductive states.
    1. Neuroscience

    Identification of motor neurons and a mechanosensitive sensory neuron in the defecation circuitry of Drosophila larvae

    Wei Zhang et al.
    The neural circuit underlying defecation behavior in Drosophila larvae has been identified and characterized.
    1. Neuroscience

    An open-source device for measuring food intake and operant behavior in rodent home-cages

    Bridget A Matikainen-Ankney et al.
    An open-source behavioral platform allows for operant, feeding, and circadian experiments in rodent home-cages.
