As a graduate student in the Thiele Lab, my research focuses on investigating sex differences in ethanol binge-drinking models in mice. Specifically, I look at the role of Corticotrophin-releasing factor (CRF), neuropeptide Y (NPY), and Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) signaling in the central amygdala (CeA), and lateral hypothalamus (LH) of male and female mice. To manipulate these neuronal pathways, I use a combination of chemogenetic, pharmacological, and immunohistochemical techniques.
