Open Highlights: An appetite for understanding appetite
In an effort to understand the mechanisms that drive hunger, trigger satiety, and modulate appetite, scientists often turn to invertebrate model organisms. This Open Highlight explores recent research into how animals combine information from the outside world and from within their own bodies to decide what they should eat. Open Highlights use recent PLOS Biology research articles as keystones around which to nucleate a short synthesis of up to ten related research articles from other PLOS journals and from the wider Open Access corpus.
