Voltage rhythms (top left) were synchronized throughout the SCN while calcium rhythms (top right) were specific to regions within the tissue. This resulted in a phase difference between voltage and calcium rhythms in the dorsal region (bottom right) while the two rhythms were in phase in the ventral region (bottom left).

Brain circuit mechanism to survive hunger
26 Jan 2017
Nagoya University-led researchers showed that hunger-driven neural signaling in the hypothalamus activates inhibitory reticular neurons in the medulla oblongata to reduce metabolism and promote feeding and chewing under starving conditions. Abnormal activation of these medullary reticular neurons may promote pathological changes leading to obesity.
