Glutamate acts in the hypothalamus promoting region-, and cell-dependent effects on feeding. Part of these effects are mediated by NMDA receptors, which are up regulated in conditions known to promote increased food intake and thermogenesis, such as exposure to cold and consumption of highly caloric diets. Here, we hypothesized that ...
