The mesopontine tegmental anesthesia area (MPTA) is a small brainstem nucleus that, when exposed to minute quantities of GABAA receptor agonists, induces a state of general anesthesia. In addition to immobility and analgesia this state is accompanied by widespread suppression of neural activity in the cerebral cortex and high delta-band power in th...
I aim to explore how weight-loss surgeries affect neural reward circuits and test if they can alleviate the desire not only for food but also for other substances of abuse.
