  • Fluid Homeostasis Group

    Our group specialises in the study of the neural circuitry underlying fluid homeostasis – how the brain regulates fluid balance and electrolyte concentrations to maintain a stable environment. Our research also focuses on other topics related to behavioural neuroscience and mental health. One such aspect is studying the neurobiological mechanisms underlying the drive to consume highly rewarding foods and…
