Competing Interests

Susanna Waters and Anna Carin Jansson are employees of NeuroSearch Sweden AB, but have no competing interests in regards to the present manuscript. Jörgen A Engel and Elisabet Jerlhag are board members of Abunon AB, owning a patent regarding treating chemical substance addiction by administering a compound that blocks ghrelin action. However, this does not alter the authors' adherence to all PLOS ONE policies on sharing data and materials.
