My research interests could appear quite broad as they cover the role(s) played by neuroendocrine systems in the regulation of physiological and thus body function. This encompasses both developmental and functional aspects of neuroendocrine function. In particular my research has focussed on systems involved in the regulating of reproductive function either directly ie the hypothalamo-pituitary-gonadal axis, or indirectly via the hypothalamo-pituitary adrenal axis.
Specific projects include:
- The effects of prenatal nutrition on reproductive function
- The effects of environmental chemicals on reproductive function
- The effects of pubertal changes in the reproductive axis on physiological and psychological function
- The relationship between environment and stress on reproductive function
- The effects of reproductive hormones on smooth muscle function
