Neuropeptide Y is a 36 amino acid neurotransmitter found in the brain and autonomic nervous system. It has been associated with numerous physiologic processes in the brain, including the regulation of energy balance, memory and learning, and epilepsy. The main effect is increased food intake and decreased physical activity. It is also implicated in the secretion of gonadotrophin-release hormone. It is secreted by the hypothalamus and it is one of the most abundant peptides in the nervous system. It is also found in some chromaffin cells of the adrenal medulla.
