The brain-periphery crosstalk, which is incessant communications between brain and peripheral organs, is a fundamental component in the homeostatic system that underlies the maintenance of our life. This research project aims at revealing the core mechanism in the brain-periphery crosstalk by applying in vivo physiology, optogenetics and neuroanatomy to our originally created transgenic rats. We hope this research contributes to future development of epoch-making therapies for various diseases caused by failure in the homeostatic system.
