The Brain, Body, and Appetite Research Collaborative aims to understand how the brain regulates appetite. In humans, social, psychological, physiologic, and other factors influence appetite and food intake. Dr. Schur’s team performs studies using both functional and structural neuroimaging techniques to study the brain. They investigate how genetics, diet, and disease (obesity and diabetes) influence appetite regulation in the brain and if obesity treatment can affect this process.
