- Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior
We study the neuroendocrine mechanisms by which environmental signals influence systemic metabolism, with the goal to identify new targets for therapeutic intervention in stress-related and metabolic disease. Research interests include neuroendocrine regulation of feeding behavior, body weight and glucose control; mechanisms linking psychological stress and metabolic disease.
