The CNS plays an essential role in the regulation of energy homeostasis. In turn, peripherally-derived nutrient and metabolic signals play a fundamental role in modulating neuroendocrine, autonomic and behavioural processes and driving intracellular metabolism in the brain. With the rise in obesity and diabetes and associated neuropathologies such as Alzheimer’s disease and mood disorders, understanding brain-metabolism interplay has never been more important.
