Homeostatic regulation is, by definition, a process that requires the ability to change to bring balance. In this review, we attempt to put forward the idea that plasticity in the hypothalamic and extrahypothalamic circuits involved in feeding is an essential component in the regulation of energy balance by peripheral signals, such as leptin and ghrelin.
