We looked at the effect of long-term nutrient intake on the central response to CCK by manganese-enhanced MRI (MEMRI). C57BL/6 mice were fed a standard high-carbohydrate (HC), high-fat (HF) or high-protein (HP) diet for 6 weeks. Assessment of brain response to CCK showed a reduction in neuronal activity in appetite centers (VMN) and in reward centers (nucleus accumbens and striatum). When comparing diet effects, while the HF diet didnt induce any change in activity, reductions in Mn uptake were found in the PVN when comparing the HP to the HC diet. Our results suggest that habituation to a HP diet leads to modifications in CCK-induced anorectic effects in the hypothalamus.
