Brief description When we feel full after a meal it is the result of a variety of different nerve signals from the gut in response to distension of the stomach and specific nutrients. These signals exhibit circadian variations. The aim of this project is to determine circadian control of gastric nerve satiety signals and to determine how this is affected by obesity and what happens when you disrupt circadian rhythm. This will ultimately identify targets and treatment regimes for the pharmacological treatment of obesity.
