Dr. Covelo is a neuroscientist interested in motivation. I his laboratory, Dr. Covelo uses non-human animal models to study the neurobiological mechanisms underlying motivated behaviors (v. g. feeding, drinking, sex, drug intake, etc.). His main interest is the study of brain circuits that control overeating or non-homeostatic feeding. Before joining the University of Wisconsin-Parkside, Dr. Covelo was a researcher at the Psychiatric Institute studying schizophrenia and obtained a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University of Illinois at Chicago studying the neural control of non-homeostatic feeding. After defending his doctoral dissertation, Dr. Covelo completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Neuroscience Institute at the University of Michigan studying pre-clinical models of addiction. Finally, Dr. Covelo moved to Wisconsin, taught biology and psychology courses at Marquette University, and joined the department of psychology at Parkside in 2019.
