is working with Jay Daniel, associate professor of animal science, is focusing her research project on the role of the hormone grehlin in castrated
male sheep. Grehlin is made by
the stomach and stimulates feed intake. This hormone is also found in humans.
“There was a study in
people where they showed them pictures of food and grehlin
[levels] went up,” Daniel said. “We wanted to see if a similar
concept would work in animals where if they saw things that made them think they were going to eat, that that would
make grehlin go up too.”
To test this theory, Stockwell-
Goering and Daniel gathered a
group of sheep and put muzzles on some of them. A bucket of food was then placed near the sheep, but the sheep wearing muzzles could not eat. The experiment was also done at a feeding time that was unfamiliar to the sheep. The experiment was performed on castrated male sheep to eliminate the possible interference of sex hormones.
Stockwell-Goering and Daniel
worked on a similar experiment last year involving pregnant female sheep, and Stockwell-
Goering said that may have inuenced their results. Stockwell-Goering used
the funds from the grant to purchase the materials for the experiment, which included syringes and 6 mL tubes, and a fee to have the materials analyzed at the University of Missouri. The materials are still at the University of Missouri and are waiting to be analyzed.Applications to be a Synovus Scholar next year are due on March 24, 2014.
