Steroidogenic Factor 1 (SF1) Neurons and Exercise

This project examines the effects of increasing steroidogenic factor 1 (SF1) neuronal activity in the ventromedial hypothalamus (VMH) via optogenetic light stimulation after exercise training. We hypothesized that the mice that received stimulation following exercise had an increased endurance capacity compared with mice that did not receive stimulation.
