How does the brain control hunger?

Dear Chris

I cannot tell you how much I enjoy your  programme especially as I spent a few very happy years living in Priory Street, Cambridge and just love that city.

I would like to know about the part in the brain that controls eating.  I remember you were talking about this a while back.  I think you said sometimes that part gets the message a bit late and  that there is a drug that can do something about it.

Is this correct?

I hope you'll be able to help me and look forward to  hearing from you.

Many thanks

Regards

Rose.

What do you think?
