Title: Regulation of sodium appetite by a distinct neuronal population in the lateral parabrachial nucleus


Speaker: Jong-Woo Sohn, Ph.D., Department of Biological Sciences, KAIST (Host : Jaewon Ko)


Time: 14:00, October 18 (Thu), 2018
        

Venue: Room 506, Building E4, DGIST


Abstract : The drive for sodium intake, sodium appetite, is a powerful form of motivation which is required for the maintenance of blood volume. This form of motivation is capable of making animals and humans ingest otherwise aversive concentrations of sodium. In the absence of fluid imbalance, however, this manifestation of sodium appetite is suppressed to prevent homeostatic deviations. The lateral parabrachial nucleus (LPBN) has long been suggested as a key brain area to control sodium appetite. However, genetic identity of LPBN neuronal subpopulation that regulates sodium appetite has remained largely obscure. In this talk, I will discuss recent findings from my lab regarding a genetically-identified population of neurons in the LPBN, marked by the expression of serotonin 2C receptor (Htr2c), which acts to inhibit sodium appetite. These results should refine our understanding of neuronal circuits that control sodium appetite.
