Research Interests

I am interested in various topics in behavioral medicine that can be studied in either humans or animals within a general framework of operant conditioning, psychoimmunology, and fatty acid biochemistry. Currently active research is concentrated on:

  1. the role of restraint induced stress on inflammatory markers and its modification by fatty acid supplementation
  2. supplementation of immune enhanced diet for Alzheimer patients.
