Full, but Still Feasting: Mouse Study Reveals How the Urge to Eat Overpowers the Signal to Stop

Michigan Medicine - University of Michigan

A new study explores the mystery of what drives eating past the point of fullness, at the most basic level in the brain. It shows that two tiny clusters of cells battle for control of feeding behavior -- and the one that drives eating overpowers the one that says to stop. It also shows that the brain’s own natural opioid system gets involved – and that blocking it with the drug naloxone can stop over-eating.

Senior Housing Communities Lead to Lower Level of Hospitalization

Washington University in St. Louis

Over time, older individuals who live in senior housing communities were found to be less likely to have high levels of hospitalization, finds a new study from the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis.“Our findings suggest that the positive effects from the various support services available in the senior housing environment accrue over time in helping vulnerable elders better manage their health conditions,” said Sojung Park, assistant professor at the Brown School and lead author of “The Role of Senior Housing in Hospitalizations Among Vulnerable Older Adults With Multiple Chronic Conditions: A Longitudinal Perspective,” published in the October issue of the journal The Gerontologist.
