Researcher garners major award from NIH for further exploration into the mechanisms of obesity
Date:5/27/2009

.

Using viruses to trace communications in the nerves of Siberian hamsters, they found that the brain uses part of the nervous system used to regulate body functions, called the sympathetic nervous system, to initiate fat burning and then sensory nerves, in turn, communicate back to the brain cells to continue or stop the fat burning depending upon the information the brain receives from the fat.

Other research goals include the study of mechanisms underlying the melatonin-induced changes in body fat and its involvement in the seasonal control of total body. Among others in his lab's team, Bartness credits Song, a research scientist, with greatly facilitating progress in his research across the past 15 plus years.

"It's been fun and hard work, and I've had a good team," he said. "This doesn't happen with me alone, and across the years, her exceptional abilities and continuous work have assisted me in this endeavor."
