Pilot & Feasibility
My research focuses on the central mechanisms underlying the regulation of physiological and behavioral responses induced by diverse stressors. I use genetic-driven neural manipulation methods to elucidate and disrupt the neural circuits recruited during immune challenges, food deprivation or psychogenic stress. I also apply these innovative approaches to map out the brain circuitries and identify genetic markers linked to specific groups of neurons that control thermoregulatory, autonomic, metabolic, or behavioral responses. My overall research aims to reveal whether and how modulation of body temperature can be used for therapeutic purposes.
