Research Summary

We decipher neural circuits in mice that stimulate or inhibit appetite for food, water, and salt. We use genetically engineered mice that express Cre recombinase and Cre-dependent viruses to visualize specific neurons and their axonal projections and to directly manipulate the activity of specific neuronal populations.
