Andrea L Tracy

Associate Professor
Department Chair of Neuroscience

My primary research interest is ingestive behavior - specifically, the role of learning in food choice and food motivation, with a particular focus on how these influence, and are influenced by, obesity. My lab uses a rat model to study the behavioral and neural mechanisms underlying these processes using a variety of biological and behavioral techniques.
