Current Research Interests:

Our laboratory group analyzes the neuroanatomical, physiological, and endocrinological bases of energy homeostasis. Autonomic, visceral, hypothalamic, and hormonal controls of metabolism and feeding are all investigated. Primary emphasis is on the identification and mapping of the neural circuitry controlling feeding and drinking. More generally, we also examine both experimental and theoretical questions pertaining to the issue of brain localization of function.
