Recent evidences have revealed that chronic intake of high-fat diets produced changes in some neurotransmitter systems involved in the central regulation of hedonic and homeostatic properties of feeding, including dopaminergic (Carlin et al., 2016; Fordahl, Locke & Jones, 2016), serotoninergic (Yu et al., 2013) and melanocortin system (Chandler, Viana, Oswald, Wauford & Boggiano, 2005; La Fleur et al., 2010).
