                    [ProfileText] => Dr. Hentges is Associate Professor of Neurobiology. Her laboratory studies how neurons in the hypothalamus are regulated and how these neurons communicate synaptically with each other as well as other neurons in the larger neural networks that affect energy balance. Current studies are focused on the preopiomelanocortin neurons in the arcuate nucleus of the hypothalamus that play a critical role in maintaining energy balance through the release of the peptide alpha-MSH and thereby affect aspects of food reward through the release of the endogenous opioid beta-endorphin. These neurons also release classical neurotransmitters and endogenous cannabinoids. The primary methods used in the lab are patch clamp electrophysiology in brain slices and primary neuronal cell cultures, retrograde labeling by stereotaxic microinjection, immunofluorescence and confocal imaging in transgenic and knockout mice.

Dr. Tobet’s research program examines organization of clusters of neurons deep in the preoptic area and hypothalamus centers that act as key relay stations that control many homeostatic mechanisms (e.g. body temperature regulation) and motivated behaviors (e.g., feeding and drinking), and regulate many sex-dependent functions. Time-lapse video microscopy is used to observe cell movements in slices of embryonic brain tissue.  Additional projects involving motion of cells in the adult pituitary (gonadotropes) and ovary (follicles and ova) are interests in the lab particularly as related to developing microfluidic devices and biosensors for following molecular changes.  The Tobet laboratory employs techniques spanning in vivo to in vitro, molecular to cellular and behavioral.

Specific projects combine behavioral neuroscience, cardiovascular and endocrine physiology, and neurocircuit analysis to determine the mechanistic basis of stress effects on health. Current studies are particularly focused on the neurobiological mechanisms linking depression and cardiovascular disease. Stress-induced changes in cardiovascular reactivity represent a significant detriment to long-term health and mortality. Changes in autonomic regulation following chronic stress may generate a predisposition to co-morbid depression and cardiovascular disease. To identify the neural substrates linking chronic stress, cardiovascular disease, and depression, my laboratory uses a variety of tools including optogenetics, radiotelemetry, immunohistochemistry, connectional anatomy, confocal microscopy, plasma hormone analysis, and social/affective behavioral assays.

We study the changes in synapse structure and function in neurons. We focus on the signaling pathways and receptor trafficking mechanisms that control synaptic transmission and synapse strength. Many of our studies are conducted in cultured neurons, a highly versatile system for analyzing synapse function. We also employ genetically modified mice to study cognitive function and diseases. We extensively employ techniques of cell biology, Calcium imaging, biochemistry, and behavioral analysis, as well as electrophysiology to deduce molecular mechanisms that control synapses.

If eyes are the windows into souls then C.elegans is a direct window into synaptic transport and function in an intact complete nervous system. The transparent nematode C.elegans with 302 neurons, a complete synaptic map, a short life span and an extensive library of genetic tools enables us to dive deep into the molecular mechanisms of learning and memory. The Hoerndli Lab uses genetic engineering, semi-automated behavioral analysis and most of all high resolution microscopy to directly observe and modify synaptic function in intact circuits of a living organism. Although very different from vertebrates at the circuit level, the molecular components and function of neurons is extremely conserved between vertebrates and C.elegans. This allows us to compare, contrast, and to define the fundamental mechanisms of synaptic function and memory.
