Welcome to the Naneix Lab
Rowett Institute, University of Aberdeen
The Naneix Lab is part of the “Obesity and Food Choice” research theme at the Rowett Institute in Aberdeen.
Our research is focused on the developmental aspects of the cognitive and neurobiological substrates underlying food-related behaviours, and how these processes are impacted by different diet lifestyles during early-life stages (childhood, adolescence). You can learn about it here.
Latest news from the lab
We are very happy to welcome Michela and Alfredo who will be here for 10 weeks to complete the Undergraduate Honours projects in the lab. Both are preparing a Neuroscience with Psychology degree at the University of Aberdeen. More information about them on the Team page.
Last Saturday Fabien had the pleasure to do some workshop at the Aberdeen Science Centre for the Explorathon 2021. It was really nice to exchange with the public, do some funny taste testing with kids and families and show them videos of taste reactivity in different species.
We are very pleased to announced that the lab has been awarded by a grant from Tenovus Scotland for 1 year. Combined with our recent grant from The Royal Society and the Wellcome Trust ISSF, it will allow us to collect precious preliminary data on the impact of developmental obesity on corticolimbic circuits.
