PSYC 4479 Research Practicum in Neurogastronomy: Sensory Processes and the Psychology of Food (Fall/Spring: 3 )

Course Description

How do our senses—what we see, hear, smell, and taste, and the sensory features of how food is presented to us—influence what, when, and how much we eat? How do moods, expectations, the situation we are in, and the people we are with influence our feelings of hunger and satiety, and even how we metabolize food? How does what we eat influence our emotions, and how do our personalities and moral convictions influence what we eat? These are some of the topics that will be addressed in this research practicum involving critical reading, class presentations, research projects, and active participation.
