Cytomegalovirus (CMV), a herpes virus, and Aspergillus, a fungus that includes many common molds, act as opportu...

Researchers home in on obesity gene and offer explanation for overeating

...esity'. GAD2, which sits on chromosome 10, acts by speeding up production of a neurotransmitter in the brain called GABA, or gamma-amino butyric acid. When GABA interacts with another molecule named neuropeptide Y in a specific area of the brain - the paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus - we are stimu...
