Scientists explore ways to restore health energy balance at the New York Academy of Sciences
Date:4/24/2011

In the human body, an incessant competition is raging between energy storinganabolicprocesses and the less abundant energy usingcatabolicprocesses. In most people, energy balance varies within a narrow range. But a natural conflict between autonomic/metabolic and cognitive/behavioral processes leads to chronic overnutrition syndrome and obesity in some.

The Sackler Institute for Nutrition Science at the New York Academy of Sciences and the Academy's Diabetes & Obesity Discussion Group present "Brain vs Gut: Can Appetite be Restrained?" a one-day symposium exploring energy balance in physiologically maladaptive Homo sapiens.

Pre-clinical and clinical scientists will present an update on diverse aspects of energy balance, from nutrient sensing and appetite regulation to eating disorders and bariatric surgery. Experts will discuss current minimally invasive interventions to restore healthy energy balance.
