A role for brown adipose tissue in diet-induced thermogenesis

N. J. Rothwell, M. J. Stock

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Measurement of energy balance during voluntary overeating in rats unequivocally establishes the quantitative importance of diet induced thermogenesis in energy balance. Like cold-induced thermogenesis, this form of heat production involves changes in he activity of the sympathetic nervous system and brown adipose tissue which suggest that this tissue may determine metabolic efficiency and resistance to obesity.
