Dr Adam Tozer

Interests

I am an electrophysiologist working in the Hypothalamus and projecting areas, interested in the neuronal control of diet, and mechanisms controlling food intake and energy balance.

My background is in synaptic physiology and neuronal homeostasis. I now apply this knowledge in a broader sense by looking at neuronal signalling within a defined neuronal network important for control of food intake.
