Nice review by Sternson et al on technologies for deconstructing appetite

Cell Metabolism

Advances in neuro-technology for mapping, manipulating, and monitoring molecularly defined cell types are rapidly advancing insight into neural circuits that regulate appetite. Here, we review these important tools and their applications in circuits that control food seeking and consumption. Technical capabilities provided by these tools establish a rigorous experimental framework for research into the neurobiology of hunger.

Nicely balanced view of all the current technological approaches.
