Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

To Eat or Not to Eat

How does the brain orchestrate and carry out the decision to begin a meal? How about to terminate one? Together, we can write a review covering how our brains and bodies guide us through a meal from beginning to end. In this project you will learn to do a comprehensive literature review, go through multiple drafts of writing a review paper, and hopefully learn a lot along the way!

Maternal Diet and Offspring Outcomes

How does a diet in utero affect offspring's health and feeding behavior as adults? This literature review can be as broad or as specific as you want! We can focus on a specific type of diet, or focus on broadly summarizing the research on maternal-fetal interactions related to diet.
