Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the influence of neural signals and the role of digestive afferents in the regulation of food intake. The findings highlight the complexity of sensory signals originating from the digestive tract. These signals are elicited in different locations and they represent the main source of pre-absorptive information involved in food intake regulation. The results also suggest that the digestive sensory signals act directly or indirectly through mechanisms that they control, separately or in connection with other afferents.

Keywords:   food intake regulation, digestive afferents, neural signals, digestive tract, pre-absorptive information
