Dietary choices: the context and the individual
Associate Professor Olga Davidenko
2D3, Priory Road Complex, BS8 1TU
I will be talking about my research on the topic of dietary decision-making in humans, using behavioural studies and functional imaging. Our everyday diet is a sum of our dietary choices, therefore studying how humans make their choices is important to understand how to direct them towards healthier diets. While context effects are widely studied today, it is also important to take into account how differently the individuals may perceive and interact with the context, for instance on the example of the promotion of vegetarian diets. I am particularly interested in studying the impact of individual attitudes and motivations on behavioral change, as well as inter-individual approaches in functional MRI imaging.
All are welcome to attend this event. A small drinks reception will be held after the seminar.
