Honorary Researcher working in collaboration with Dr Jeffrey Davies (Swansea University) and Dr Tim Wells (Cardiff University) on understanding the effects of temporal feeding patterns on adult hippocampal neurogenesis and memory function, and whether the stomach hormone ghrelin is responsible for these effects. This work will allow us to understand how the way that we eat and how we feed our children can affect their neurological and educational development.
