Patients with temporal lobe epilepsy have increased rates of reproductive dysfunction. Our lab studies the neural mechanisms connecting seizure activity in the hippocampus with downstream changes in reproductive function. My work focuses on identifying points of dysfunction in the hypothalamic kisspeptin-GnRH circuit, which plays a central role in regulating the release of key reproductive hormones.
