Research in our laboratory focuses on neural circuits that control gastrointestinal function and food intake. The methods used include patch clamp electrophysiology in slices of the brain stem, in vivo recordings of end organ function, microinjection of drugs into the brain, and electron microscopy coupled with immunohistochemistry. These techniques are used to map the pathways in the brain that affect end organs (such as the stomach), and affect food intake.
