The brain cannot be fooled by artificial sweeteners
Date:9/22/2013

g with important reductions in brain dopamine levels.

"This is verified by the fact that when hungry mice who thus have low sugar levels are given a choice between artificial sweeteners and sugars, they are more likely to completely switch their preferences towards sugars even if the artificial sweetener is much sweeter than the sugar solution."

Now that the team know that dopamine cells are critical in sugar/sweetener choice, they hope to identify the associated receptors and pathways in the brain.
