According to the concept of perinatal programming environmental factors during fetal development and early postnatal life can influence phenotype in later life by modifying organ and tissue development and the epigenetic information of specific genes which, in turn, induce alteration in gene expression. Global nutrient restriction is a well established intervention to study fetal programming but choline, a micronutrient essential for tissue growth and development, has not been extensively studied.The aim of this thesis is to investigate long term effects of modifications in maternal macro and micronutrient intake on the offsprings appetite regulation and metabolic health.Twin pregnant sheep were fed to requirements until 110 days of gestation and then randomised to stay on the same diet (R) or be restricted to 60% of caloric requirements (N) until term (145 days). Offspring were subsequently subject either to a standard early postnatal growth rate as both twins remained with the mother (S) or to an accelerated growth rate resulting when only one twin remained to be mother fed (A).
This thesis assesses the action of the peripherally acting beta blocker, nadolol, on the fMRI response to neutral, pleasant and unpleasant visual stimuli, and during rest. 80 mg nadolol and placebo tablets were administered to twenty healthy human subjects in a double blinded, randomised, placebo controlled crossover design. Drug induced reduction in anterior insula response to emotional stimuli supports results from previously published studies, and the James Lange theory.
