Abstract

Activation of AgRP neurons potently induces feeding behaviors; however, whether this activity is involved in motivations of feeding behavior is unclear. A recent study in Nature (Betley et al., 2015) reports that AgRP neuron activity conditions learned behavior by transmitting a negative-valence signal: linking AgRP neurons to the preference of environmental cues associated with homeostatic need.
