Not sugar but only calories release dopamine in body

Researchers found out that different circuits in the same region process sweetness and calories but dopamine is solitary released in reply to calories, not sugar

Scientists from Yale University, as well as the University of São Paulo and Federal University in Brazil, teamed up to examine the brain’s association to sugar.

The team found that different brain circuits are entreated by the desire people originate from eating sweets and the calories they supply.

Specified the choice between something calorific with an unpleasant taste and something sugary with less calories, many vertebrates choose calories over taste. That’s because the brain prioritizes energy over taste to guarantee survival.

The team led a series of experiments with mice. They found that the pleasure derived from eating, in addition to the caloric value and nutrition of food, invokes neural circuits in the striatum – the region of the brain involved with rewards and cognition.

But, different neural circuits in that same region are involved in those two processes.

Experts say the pleasure derived from eating, in addition to the caloric value and nutrition of food, invokes neural circuits in the striatum – the region of the brain involved with rewards and cognition
