Estrogen, Hypothalamus, Hindbrain
|Seeking Collaborators with Skill Sets:||
|Neuroscience Research Interests:||I am interested in how estrogen acts within the CNS to alter energy balance (including eating behaviors and body weight) and body fluid balance (including salt intake, water intake, blood pressure). In addition, I am interested in how physiological and psychogenic stressors interact to alter stress hormone responses and stress-related behaviors. Finally, I am interested in how aging may alter all of the above.|
