      By ERIC PACE

      Dr. Irving Kupfermann, a leading student of the way that animals' nervous
      systems control their feeding behavior and motivational states like hunger,
      died on Feb. 19 at his home in Port Washington, N.Y. He was 64.

      The cause was a neurodegenerative disease, said Dr. John Koester, a colleague..

      At his death, Dr. Kupfermann had been for 28 years both a professor of
      physiology and cellular biophysics and psychiatry in the Center for
      Neurobiology and Behavior at Columbia and a research scientist at the New York
      State Psychiatric Institute; it is affiliated with Columbia and is on its
      campus.
