The dilemmas of the gourmet fly: the molecular and neuronal mechanisms of feeding and nutrient decision making in Drosophila
Publication year: 2013

http://journal.frontiersin.org/Journal/10.3389/fnins.2013.00012/full
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
To survive and successfully reproduce animals need to maintain a balanced intake of nutrients and energy. The nervous system of insects has evolved multiple mechanisms to regulate feeding behavior. When animals are faced with the choice to feed, several decisions must be made: whether or not to eat, how much to eat, what to eat, and when to eat. Using Drosophila melanogaster substantial progress has been achieved in understanding the neuronal and molecular mechanisms controlling feeding decisions. These feeding decisions are implemented in the nervous system on multiple levels, from alterations in the sensitivity of peripheral sensory organs to the modulation of memory systems. This review discusses methodologies developed in order to study insect feeding, the effects of neuropeptides and neuromodulators on feeding behavior, behavioral evidence supporting the existence of internal energy sensors, neuronal and molecular mechanisms controlling protein intake, and finally the regulation of feeding by circadian rhythms and sleep. From the discussed data a conceptual framework starts to emerge which aims to explain the molecular and neuronal processes maintaining the stability of the internal milieu.

A holidic medium for Drosophila melanogaster
Publication year: 2013

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3877687/
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
A critical requirement for research using model organisms is an appropriate, well-defined and consistent diet. There is currently no complete chemically defined (holidic) diet available for Drosophila melanogaster. We describe a holidic medium that is equal in performance to an oligidic diet optimized for adult fecundity and lifespan. It is also sufficient to support development over multiple generations, but at a reduced rate. During seven years of experiments, the holidic diet yielded more consistent experimental outcomes than oligidic food for adult fitness traits. Furthermore, nutrients and drugs are more accessible to flies in holidic medium and, similar to dietary restriction on oligidic food, amino acid dilution increases fly lifespan. We also report amino acid specific effects on food choice behavior and that folic acid from the microbiota is sufficient for development. These insights could not be gained using oligidic or meridic diets.

Title: BIAL Grants
Start date: 1994
History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.

Automated monitoring and quantitative analysis of feeding behaviour in Drosophila

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Food ingestion is one of the defining behaviours of all animals, but its quantification and analysis remain challenging. This is especially the case for feeding behaviour in small, genetically tractable animals such as Drosophila melanogaster. Here, we present a method based on capacitive measurements, which allows the detailed, automated and high-throughput quantification of feeding behaviour. Using this method, we were able to measure the volume ingested in single sips of an individual, and monitor the absorption of food with high temporal resolution. We demonstrate that flies ingest food by rhythmically extending their proboscis with a frequency that is not modulated by the internal state of the animal. Instead, hunger and satiety homeostatically modulate the microstructure of feeding. These results highlight similarities of food intake regulation between insects, rodents, and humans, pointing to a common strategy in how the nervous systems of different animals control food intake.

Using a holidic medium to study nutrient homeostasis in Drosophila melanogaster
Publication year: 2013

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Animals choose which macronutrient to eat according to their current internal nutrient and mating status and optimize the
protein to carbohydrate ratio in their diet to maximize their evolutionary fitness in terms of lifetime egg production. In the field it is well accepted that yeast is mainly used by Drosophila melanogaster as a protein and therefore amino acid source but a detailed nutritional analysis of this food source remains hampered by its chemically complexity. To disentangle the different nutritional contributions of yeast on life history traits and feeding behavior we have used a novel holidic medium that is adequate for fly development as well as adult traits, such as behavior, fecundity and lifespan. Using detailed and quantitative behavior analyses of food choice and feeding behavior we show that specifically removing amino acids from the adult diet leads to a foraging phenotype which fully mimics a lack of dietary yeast. Furthermore this effect can be triggered by the lack of single essential amino acids while removing non essential amino acids from the diet has no effect on food choice. Interestingly, flies raised in the absence of yeast preferred yeast when amino acids deprived, suggesting the existence of an innate system for yeast valuation. These data shed light on the exquisite behavioral sensitivity of Drosophila to the lack of single nutritional components and the foraging strategies used to achieve nutrient homeostasis. Our study also exemplifies the power of using a holidic diet for examining nutrient sensitive traits such as nutrient homeostasis.
