My research centers generally around studying the neural bases of learning and memory, and more specifically on the contributions the different medial temporal lobe structures (especially hippocampus) make to these complex cognitive processes.  Our most recent research findings indicate that the hippocampus is importantly involved in modulating food intake and thus is thought to play an important role in obesity.
