The control of energy metabolism is a central event for cell, organ, and organism survival. There are many control levels in energy metabolism, but in this Special Issue, we will concentrate on the neuroendocrine control that is operated through specialized neural (mainly, but not exclusively, hypothalamic) circuits controlling both food intake and energy expenditure. Due to the explosion of obesity and related diseases, the subject of this Special Issue is of particular interest today.
The topics that will be covered by this Special Issue include but are not limited to:
- Programming of neurohormonal circuits of feeding
- Gut–brain axis and metabolic control
- Neuropeptide systems in feeding behavior
- Neural control of food reward
- Eating disorders
- Glial cells and neuroendocrine control
- Adipose tissue and metabolic neural control
- Gonadal hormones and feeding
- Metabolic sex differences
- Endocrine disruptors and neural control of feeding and energy metabolism
Manuscripts dealing with other pertinent challenging issues are also highly desired.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Metabolites is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
