Research activities

My laboratory uses primarily patch clamp electrophysiology in acutely-prepared brain slices from rat, mouse and human to study the actions of neuropeptides. The research is related to several human disorders, primarily including obesity, involuntary weight loss (cachexia/anorexia) and anxiety disorders such as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
