Center Core
Energy Balance, Exercise & Behavior Core

Center University of California Davis
Description Obesity is the result of an inability to maintain energy balance, and changes in
energy balance can also be important contributing factors in the etiology of
diabetes and other metabolic diseases. A major goal of Core D is to provide
investigators with the services necessary to accurately measure the major
components of energy balance (energy intake, energy expenditure, body
composition, nutrient digestibility) in their mouse models. Core D also provides
tests that allow investigators to examine physiological factors that may
influence food intake or energy expenditure. A second focus of Core D is to
understand the contribution of physical activity to energy balance as well as
the beneficial effects of voluntary exercise or treadmill training on
metabolism. Behavior is the third component of Core D, with an array of tests
for cognitive and behavioral assessment. Core D investigators have complementary
expertise in energy metabolism and exercise/muscle biology to provide clients
with assistance in all steps of the research process, from designing experiments
to analyzing and interpreting data. In addition to offering standard services in
our catalog, Core D also works with investigators to design custom tests or
develop new tests to meet their research needs.
