1. Issue with non-human research research being generalised to human research?
- It's too simplistic
- Obese women had normal levels or high levels of leptin suggesting leptin has different roles in different animals' bodies
- It's too expensive

2. Issue of the Glucostat theory
- Cannot be considered adaptive like it suggests it is as it should anticipate low levels of blood sugars instead of waiting till levels of blood sugar are low
- It's too simplistic to suggest that this is how blood glucose is controlled
- It doesn't include insulin and glucagon's part in regulating blood sugar levels and therefore control of eating behaviour
3. Which study found that when rats were injected with leptin they lost weight?
- Lutter et al.
- Yang et al.
- Zhang et al.
- Heatherington and Ranson
4. Role of Lateral Hypothalamus in controlling eating behaviour
- Activated high levels of blood sugar causing feelings of satiety (fullness) so the individual starts eating
- Activated by low levels of blood glucose causing feelings of satiety so the individual starts eating
- Activated by low levels of blood glucose causing feelings of hunger so the individual starts eating
- Activated high levels of blood sugar causing feelings of satiety (fullness) so the individual stops eating
5. What did Lutter et al. find?
- The hormone gherlin produced in response to stress also increases appetite
- Neuropeptide Y is produced by the hypothalamus leading to overeating then when abdominal fat is gained, the fat produces neuropeptide Y leading to more overeating
- When the LH was damaged it caused rats to stop eating but when it was stimulated it caused rats to overeat
