Lesson 3.5 – Homeostasis gone awry — how does the satiety pathway relate to obesity?

In the last lesson we explored how the body regulates the sensations of hunger and satisfaction. In this lesson we will work our way through another primary research paper that shows how changing diet and lifestyle may not be enough to rebalance homeostasis signals. This data has implications for people attempting to lose weight. Students will work in groups to prepare to present their findings from the paper. The groups should be spend about 10 minutes preparing to present and about 20 minutes presenting the findings from their worksheet. Note: this may take two class periods depending on how much the students were able to complete as homework.
