Karin Koopman describes the serotonin transporters (SERT) in the diencephalon (part of the brain that includes the thalamus and hypothalamus) and dopamine transporters (DAT) in the striatum (the subcortical part of the forebrain) in various metabolic conditions in both slender and obese people, and their relationship with eating behaviours. In order to study the role of these transporters in the onset of obesity and carbohydrate metabolism disorders, she visualised DAT and SERT in slender subjects before and after a high calorie diet.
