Caption: Hormone receptor nerve cells. Confocal light micrograph of orexin receptors (red) in the brain. Orexins, also known as hypocretins, are hormones that regulate the sleep cycle by inducing wakefulness. They also play a role in stimulating appetite. Also seen are neurons (nerve cells, green), which are responsible for passing information around the central nervous system (CNS) and from the CNS to the rest of the body, and cell nuclei, which contains each cell's genetic information.
