Abstract

The regulation of caloric intake involves multiple interacting behavioral and physiological control mechanisms. The papers in this special issue arose from a symposium held by the Ingestive Behavior Research Center at Purdue University in April, 2005. The presenters were challenged to compare ideas and approaches across a variety of model systems and species. While restraint must always be exercised when making comparisons across species, many fundamental aspects of the problem of appropriately regulating food intake and energy balance likely cross species boundaries. The origins of phenotypes with varying susceptibility to environmental influences were discussed from both evolutionary and developmental perspectives. A theme common to a number of contributions is the concept that different aspects of ingestive behavior are variously modulated, and over different time frames, by diverse physiological, behavioral and neural mechanisms. The papers in this special issue represent an attempt to bridge traditional disciplinary perspectives to provide additional insight into the origins of overweight and obesity and approaches to prevent and ameliorate the prevalence and consequences of increased body weight and adiposity.
