The Columbia University Seminar on Appetitive Behavior

Invites you to celebrate its 40th
Anniversary with a symposium entitled:

 Translational Research in Appetitive Behavior: A 40
Year Retrospective and a Look Ahead.


The main theme is how animal and human work over the
past 40 years have complemented one another and led to some significant breakthroughs in
our understanding of how the brain, gut, hormones, and adipose tissue contribute to the
control of appetite, food intake, and body weight.
