This study used fMRI to investigate the neural networks responding to ingestion of a standardized glucose solution by correlation with blood glucose levels. In addition to identified hypothalamic activation, we detected a large neural network that regulates satiety. Future studies will examine subjects with eating disorders and correlate with temporal profiles of other blood markers (such as c-peptide) and behavioral data of satiety.
