My thesis is focused on how the brain integrates hormonal information to modulate feeding and reproduction. I am interested in the metabolic challenges mammals face during and after pregnancy. Specifically, I am looking at the orexigenic peptide ghrelin and its relationship with reproductive outcomes of female rats.
