- Food intake and body weight regulation
- Learning and memory
- Cognitive Impairment / Alzheimer's
Dr. Kanoskiís research focuses on the neurobiological control of food intake and body weight regulation. More specifically his laboratory focuses on understanding how the brain processes peripherally- and centrally-derived neuroendocrine signals to control learned and motivational aspects of feeding behavior, as well as to examine how these neuroendocrine signaling systems contribute to and are compromised by obesity and related metabolic disorders. The lab also focuses on exploring the relationship between consuming saturated fatty acids and refined carbohydrates (i.e., "Western diets") and the development of neuronal dysregulation, cognitive impairment, and Alzheimer's pathology.
