Study Finds New Dopamine Response to Eating When Hungry

researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Metabolism Research in Germany used a newly developed positron emission tomography (PET) technique to not only find that two peaks of dopamine are actually released, but were also able to identify the specific brain regions associated with them

The fact that our brain’s response to food relies on a dopamine release system is not a recent discovery; however, researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Metabolism Research in Germany used a newly developed positron emission tomography (PET) technique to not only find that two peaks of dopamine are actually released, but were also able to identify the specific brain regions associated with them.
