  • Central oxytocin and food intake: focus on macronutrient-driven reward

    Klockars, Anica; Levine, Allen S.; Olszewski, Pawel K. (FRONTIERS MEDIA SA, 2015)
    Centrally acting oxytocin (OT) is known to terminate food consumption in response to excessive stomach distension, increase in salt loading, and presence of toxins. Hypothalamic-hindbrain OT pathways facilitate these aspects ...
  • Effect of oxytocin on hunger discrimination

    Head, Mitchell Antony; Jewett, David C.; Gartner, Sarah N.; Klockars, Anica; Levine, Allen S.; Olszewski, Pawel K. (Frontiers Media SA, 2019)
    Centrally and peripherally administered oxytocin (OT) decreases food intake and activation of the endogenous OT systems, which is associated with termination of feeding. Evidence gathered thus far points to OT as a facilitator ...
  • Feed-forward mechanisms: Addiction-like behavioral and molecular adaptations in overeating

    Alsiö, Johan; Olszewski, Pawel K.; Levine, Allen S.; Schiöth, Helgi B. (Elsevier, 2012)
    Food reward, not hunger, is the main driving force behind eating in the modern obesogenic environment. Palatable foods, generally calorie-dense and rich in sugar/fat, are thus readily overconsumed despite the resulting ...
  • Intragastric preloads of L-tryptophan reduce ingestive behavior via oxytocinergic neural mechanisms in male mice

    Gartner, Sarah Nicole; Aidney, Fraser; Klockars, Anica; Prosser, Colin G.; Carpenter, Elizabeth A.; Isgrove, Kiriana; Levine, Allen S.; Olszewski, Pawel K. (Elsevier, 2018)
    Human and laboratory animal studies suggest that dietary supplementation of a free essential amino acid, l-tryptophan (TRP), reduces food intake. It is unclear whether an acute gastric preload of TRP decreases consumption ...
  • Neurobeachin, a regulator of synaptic protein targeting, is associated with body fat mass and feeding behavior in mice and body-mass index in humans

    Olszewski, Pawel K.; Rozman, Jane; Jacobsson, Josefin A.; Rathkolb, Birgit; Stromberg, Siv; Hans, Wolfgang; Klockars, Anica; Alsiö, Johan; Riserus, Ulf; Becker, Lore; Holter, Sabine; Elvert, Ralf; Ehrhardt, Nicole; Gailus-Durner, Valérie; Fuchs, Helmut; Fredriksson, Robert; Wolf, Eckhard; Klopstock, Thomas; Wurst, Wolfgang; Levine, Allen S.; Marcus, Claude; de Angelis, Martin Hrabě; Klingenspor, Martin; Schiöth, Helgi B.; Kilimann, Manfred W. (Public Library of Science, 2012)
    Neurobeachin (Nbea) regulates neuronal membrane protein trafficking and is required for the development and functioning of central and neuromuscular synapses. In homozygous knockout (KO) mice, Nbea deficiency causes perinatal ...
