Dr. Davidson's research focuses on the processes and brain substrates that underlie memory and energy regulation. Dr. Davidson and his students aim to increase understanding of (a) how learning and memory processes contribute to the control of food intake and body weight and; (b) how dietary and other environmental factors that promote obesity might impair the function of brain areas that underlie those cognitive processes. Dr. Davidson works with nonhuman and human animal models.
