Brain, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the S/H lab.It's continuing mission, to explore strange new phenomena, to seek out new mechanisms and new substances, to boldly go where no one has gone before...
Studies on mechanism and function of sleep and wakefulness
Deciphering the mechanism of circadian clock
Understanding the mechanism of regulated hypometabolism (hibernation)
Elucidation of the physiological role of novel neuropeptides
Identification of novel biologically active substances
Creation and promotion of WILLDYNAMICS
We study mechanism of behaviors such as sleep-wakefulness, feeding behavior, circadian rhythms, emotional processes.
Our goal is to understand the physiological and pharmacological functions of neuropeptides (ex. Orexin, QRFP, etc.) from the molecular and cellular levels to behavior level.
