This issue highlights human obesity—a growing concern—through a psychobiological lens:

For our third and final issue for this semester’s volume of Brain Waves, the newsletter will highlight a pervasive social concern that effects many people: Obesity!

The neural causes of obesity, the foundational biological underpinnings that allow for consumption and satiation, as well as the animal models that permit further study, are all covered in this comprehensive issue.

In order to achieve this level of completeness, new contributors are brought to the table, and a faculty member of the Psychology department discusses her research.
