If you are philanthropically inclined and looking for a cause to become involved with take a look at The Satiety Center. Located at the ventromedial nucleus of the hypothalamus, The Satiety Center is instrumental in regulating appetite. While The Satiety Center has many functions, we all know that the desire for sex and food rank high on the list and a craving for either can lead to spurts in irrational activities such a promiscuity and gluttony. Epicurus believed that pleasure was based on the amelioration of discomfort and centuries later Freud would controversially propose that the pleasure principle and the need to gratify desire were drives that even infants experienced. Located on a prime piece of cortical real estate with an excellent view of the the upper brain, The Satiety Center is mandated with attending to all of these activities and is open 24/7 for business. Whether it's an endorphin flood or a traffic jam on a neurogenic pathway, The Satiety Center is always there. It's your biogenic surge protector when there's increased activity in the brain, allowing serotonin reuptake inhibition when necessary for the prevention of burn outs and break downs. For more information about The Satiety Center please fill up on your favorite sweets or soft drinks or take a gander at porn loop. If you take Cialis and "get an erection lasting more than 4 hours seek immediate medical help to avoid long-term injury."
