From the authors: "The use of this preclinical model allows for the analysis of the biological effects of exercise on physiology and behavior while minimizing the role of environmental and psychosocial modifiers that can greatly influence human behavior. There is some evidence that these biologically driven sex differences in appetite in response to exercise translate to humans."

This study is highlighted as one of August’s "best of the best" as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
