What is the neurologic mechanism of the over-eating of Prader-Willi patients? 
One patient stated that she has a problem with her hypothalamus and that her
eating binges can be triggered bcertain emotions and menstruation.  What are
the various hypothesis of how the gene deletion causes the symptoms of
Prader-Willi?  Thanks.
