Neuroscience: Moving thoughts control insulin release.

Current biology : CB

Authors: Andreas Schoofs, Michael J Pankratz

Insulin release has mostly been studied in the context of metabolic signals. An electrophysiology approach in Drosophila now reveals regulation of insulin-producing cell activity by neuronal circuits controlling locomotion. Even without actual movement, activating these circuits is sufficient to inhibit neuropeptide release.
