The study, published in The Journal of Neuroscience, describes a new way to affect hunger in the brain and helps to explain why people taking a class of drugs for Type II diabetes gain more body fat.The team found that sensors in the brain that detect free circulating energy and help use sugars are located on brain cells that control eating behaviour."This is important because many people with Type II diabetes are taking antidiabetics, known as thiazolidinediones (TZDs), which specifically activate these sensors," said study author Johnny Garretson, doctoral student at the Georgia State University.

"People taking these TZDs are hungrier, and they do gain more weight," Garretson pointed out.The study found peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor sensors on hunger-stimulating cells, known as agouti-related protein (AgRP) cells, at the base of the brain in the hypothalamus.
