Abstract

Neuropeptide Y is an important regulator of energy intake and expenditure. The central portion of this regulatory system appears to reside in the arcuate nucleus/paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus. The effects of neuropeptide Y on energy metabolism include increased food intake, decreased thermogenesis and increased white fat storage.
