Neurobiology and Obesity Lab (NBO)
WHO WE ARE
We are an academic research group located at the School of Biological Sciences, Pontificia Universidad Católica in Santiago, Chile
WHAT WE DO
We aim to understand how our brain regulates food choice and intake and how these mechanisms are dysregulated in our current obesogenic environment.
We use a combination of behavioral analysis, biochemical, and immunohistological techniques to study feeding behavior. We also have developed our own behavioral equipment using 3D printing and open-source electronics.
