"Food & Human Behavior" Lab research group
“Do you want to take a look at the desert menu?“
“A fruit salad or a molten chocolate cake?“
Every day we make hundreds of food-related decisions. In our lab, we investigate the psychological and cerebral mechanisms underlying such choices. More specifically, we study food preferences and choices in healthy individuals as well as in
- overweight and obese individuals (in collaboration with Dr. Zoltan Pataky),
- patients with type 1 diabetes (in collaboration with Dr. Giacomo Gastaldi),
- individuals suffering from an olfactory and/or a gustatory impairment (in collaboration with Dr. Basile Landis).
We are using psychological methods and functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI).
