Jocelyn M. Richard, PhD
Jocelyn Richard received her BA in psychobiology from Occidental College, where she worked in the lab of Nancy Dess, and completed her PhD at the University of Michigan in Kent Berridge's laboratory. Jocelyn conducted her postdoctoral work in the labs of Howard Fields at UC San Francisco, and Patricia Janak at Johns Hopkins University, where she focused on dissecting the functional contributions of activity in ventral pallidal neurons to reward seeking behavior. She is particularly interested in how signals related to learning, affect and physiological state are integrated in the brain to generate motivated behaviors. These questions are the focus of her lab's work at the University of Minnesota.
