Pattern Matching in Lists


Hello,

Suppose w={1,1,1,0,0,1,0,1,0,0,1,0,0}.

How can I count the number of occurrences of a 1 in w immediately
followed by a 0 in w?

I have tried every incarnation of Count[] I can think of; for example,

Count[w,{___,1,0,___}]

does not seem to work.  In general, how can I count the number of
occurrences of a 1 followed by a 0 in a list of 1's and 0's?  Thank you!
