  Leptin may rapidly inhibit food intake by altering the secretion of hypothalamic neuropeptides such as neuropeptide Y (NPY), a stimulator of food intake, and/or corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH), an inhibitor of food intake

correct me if i am wrong

  what are the two places "Leptin" acts on and which does it stimulate and which does it inhibit?

neuropeptide y is released from the gut to go act on the hypothalamus [lateral area] to stimulate hunger.....

"leptin" inhibits "neuropeptide y" in fed state....

  leptin acts on lateral and venteromedial area in hypothalamus

it stimulates lateral area and inhibits venteromedial

  the other way around :)

leptin : inhibits lateral area
leptin : stimulates ventromedial area

thank you :)
