Deconstructing the neural circuits regulating appetite

Project: Research

Project Description

Feeding behaviour is a fundamental physiological process in all animals. Despite the seemingly simple endpoint, feeding behaviour is affected by numerous factors including stress and motivation that can inhibit feeding behaviour. An understanding of the neural circuits that influence a feeding response in the absence
emotional or cognitive obstacles is needed. This is critical to maximise growth and survival in many
australian industries including agriculture, conservation and basic science.
