Description: Orexins, also known as hypocretins, are a pair of neuropeptides that first discovered in a specific population of neurons in the lateral hypothalamic area (LHA), a region of the brain implicated in feeding, arousal, and motivated behavior. Orexin A (OxA), also known as hypocretin 1, is a regulatory neuropeptide involved in the control of various autonomic and neuroendocrine functions. It appears to have a significant impact on the regulation of trophic hormones secretion by influencing the hypothalamus and the pituitary.
