Description of Research Projects:
Her research interests include the impact of diet and metabolism on memory in obesity and whether exercise and anti-diabetic drugs can boost neural stem cell growth & neurogenesis to enhance memory in obesity. She uses touchscreen and conventional behavioural tasks to understand changes in memory following diet manipulation in mice. She pairs behaviour with advanced microscopy techniques to observe cellular changes in neurogenesis.
