    The pleasure of rewards in humans is mediated by an opioidergic mechanism.

    Morphine disinhibits glutamatergic input to VTA dopamine neurons and promotes dopamine neuron excitation

    Ming Chen et al.
    Experiments examining the actions of morphine on single neurons from one of the brain's reward centers, the VTA, reveal the mechanism by which the drug exerts its hedonic effects.

    Spinal signalling of C-fiber mediated pleasant touch in humans

    Andrew G Marshall et al.
    Pleasant touch perception in humans is unaffected by spinothalamic disruption indicating integrated spinal processing of hedonic and discriminative tactile inputs rather than privileged C-tactile-lamina I-spinothalamic projections.

    The modulation of savouring by prediction error and its effects on choice

    Kiyohito Iigaya et al.
    The anticipation of rewards turns out to have its own hedonic value, on top of that of the reward itself; a wide range of behavioral and neurophysiological data suggest that this anticipation is boosted by prediction errors.

    Starvation promotes concerted modulation of appetitive olfactory behavior via parallel neuromodulatory circuits

    Kang I Ko et al.
    Starvation upregulates activity in certain sensory channels and downregulates it in others in what appears to be an optimization strategy that serves to increase the hedonic value of food odors.

    Decoding odor quality and intensity in the Drosophila brain

    Antonia Strutz et al.
    The lateral horn can be classified into three functional odor response domains that decode opposing hedonic valences and odor intensity.

    Accelerated phosphatidylcholine turnover in macrophages promotes adipose tissue inflammation in obesity

    Kasparas Petkevicius et al.
    Obesity leads to increased phosphatidylcholine turnover in adipose tissue macrophages that makes them susceptible to saturated fatty acid-induced inflammation.

    SCGN deficiency results in colitis susceptibility

    Luis F Sifuentes-Dominguez et al.
    A novel mutation in SCGN is associated with risk for inflammatory bowel disease and implicates the intestinal neuroendocrine compartment in the pathogenesis of this disorder.
