About the Project

Pulsatile secretion of the hormone, oxytocin, is essential for milk delivery during suckling and its secretion from the posterior pituitary gland is triggered by coordinated bursts of action potentials across the population of oxytocin neurons. This project will use concurrent recording of action potential firing in oxytocin neurons to determine the mechanisms that coordinate burst firing across the oxytocin neuron population during suckling.
