The Symposium PERIPHERAL AND CENTRAL REGULATION OF ENERGY AND FLUID TONICITY HOMEOSTASIS to be held at the Medical School of Ribeirão Preto – USP has as its theme the regulation of energy homeostasis and body fluids. The thematic is current and of great interest with great advances in the knowledge of its physiological and pathophysiological aspects, as for example, hypertension and obesity. It is also highlighted that new methodological tools have contributed to the continuous advancement of this area of knowledge. The event will consist of seven modules, plenary sessions, oral presentation session, poster session and meeting with the specialist (Meet the Professor).
The Symposium will address important themes related to: 1) Hypothalamic integration of external and internal environments in the control of energy homeostasis; 2) DREADDs reveal arcuate AgRP/NPY neurons control both fasting-induced suppression of the HPT axis and activation of hepatic TH metabolism; 3) Novel regulator of the central control of feeding and systemic insulin sensitivity; 4) Peripheral regulation of energy homeostasis; 5) Metabolic Control of Reproduction and Growth; 6) Metabolic and Cardiovascular Programming; 7) Physiology of osmoregulation; 8) Pleiotropic function of TRPV4 ion channels in the central nervous system; 9) Vasopressin Peptides: Osmoregulation and Beyond; 10) New Techniques to interrogate physiology.

Invited Speakers:
The symposium will comprise eight sessions about different themes as described ahead. Each session features main lectures of established investigators as well as oral communications of young investigators in the beginning of their careers. The sessions have strong national representation along with significant international contribution from different countries (Argentina, Canada, Germany, Mexico, Portugal and United States).
