Arshad Khan
Associate Professor, Biological Sciences

Dr. Khan studies the neural systems that regulate energy balance, neuroendocrine function and behavioral state in the mammalian brain. He is particularly interested in the intracellular signaling mechanisms used by various neurotransmitters within hypothalamic circuits participating in feeding and sleep/wake behaviors, and how these mechanisms might be influenced by nutrient status (e.g., hypoglycemia). He also collaborates on neuroinformatics projects related to the modeling and management of neuroscientific data about these circuits. As part of his interests in mechanisms underlying nutrient homeostasis, he also maintains an active research interest in the history of neurochemistry and thermodynamics.
