Interactions of Stress, Corticosteroids, and KNDy Neurons in Vasomotor Symptoms in Aging Females
Project Co-Leaders - Ursula Kaiser, MD & Victor Navarro, PhD

This Project aims to investigate the mechanisms underlying the control of thermoregulation by sex steroids and how this can be modulated by stress.  By using an animal model, investigators will use a series of genetic, behavioral and pharmacological approaches to identify the neuronal circuitry connecting the reproductive axis, stress, thermoregulation, and sleep quality.
