Personal profile

Research Interests

My research focuses on the effects of estrogen in the central nervous system (CNS) and, in particular, on behaviors related to energy balance (i.e., feeding) and to body fluid balance (i.e., water intake, salt intake). I use ovariectomized rats to investigate estrogen effects on central neural pathways and neurotransmitter systems involved in these motivated behaviors and physiological processes.

Research Opportunities with Dr. Curtis

Research Area: My lab uses a rat model to investigate central actions of estrogen in studies focused on control of energy balance, body fluid balance, or stress. Techniques employed include behavioral analyses (food intake, water intake, salt intake, wheel-running, behavioral indices of stress/anxiety), ELISAs and western blots (to measure proteins in the central nervous system and hormones in circulation), and immunohistochemistry (to evaluate distribution and activation of phenotypically identified neurons and/or glia).
