Current Research

I am currently investigating the effects of hyperenergetic diets on behaviour in rodents, including the role of nutritional programming. Behaviours studied are feeding behaviour, emotional behaviour and learning.

Past Research

Past research was focussed on feeding behaviour and the role of serotonin as a satiety factor. In addition, I studied anxiety-related behaviour, in particular the role of brain angiotensin in anxiety.
