    Signals from the hypothalamus govern food intake and energy balance. A new study describes nesfatin-1, a hypothalamic and brainstem peptide whose expression decreases during fasting. Although central treatment with nesfatin-1 inhibited food intake and nesfatin-1 blockade increased food intake, the role and mechanism of nesfatin in energy balance remains unclear.
