Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Animals and humans eat for many reasons, including energy, reward, stress, and specific tastes. Neuroregulators control all aspects of feeding behaviour, ranging from foraging to hoarding to ingestion and finally to the cessation of intake. In this Special Issue of Nutrients, we will focus on how various diets (from single macronutrient tastants to complex foods that differ in flavour and energy density) alter regulatory circuitry. We will discuss which regulators initiate ingestion and which macronutrients may be targeted. We will also review control of the meal size and cessation of the meal. The role of the gastrointestinal tract, the pancreas, and the signalling pathways from the vagus to the hindbrain to the upstream parts of the brain will be considered.Prof. Dr. Allen Levine

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nutrients is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
