Kevin Urstadt, a visiting member of the Cognitive Science department, discusses his recent post-doctoral work under Kent Berridge at the University of Michigan. He received his Ph.D. in Psychology at the University of California - Riverside, and has since been researching neural control of feeding and reward-seeking behaviors. He is also interested in the neuroanatomy behind these functions and in diseases that arise from altered signaling of these circuits
