Description: The focus of Dr. Saper’s laboratory is on the integrated functions maintained by the hypothalamus. These include regulation of wake-sleep cycles, body temperature, and feeding. These functions interact with one another extensively, and all three are driven by homeostatic mechanisms as well as by circadian influences. The laboratory attempts to identify the neuronal circuitry that is involved in regulating these responses. Although the emphasis in the laboratory is on morphological methods, particularly the use of axonal tracer methods combined with in situ hybridization and immunohistochemistry to determine the chemical phenotypes of neurons as well as changes in gene expression under different physiological conditions, the lab also employs a wide range of physiological methods.
