Why we eat what we eat - The psychology of choice and AGM
Food and Health Forum
Date: Monday 16 March 2009| Venue: Royal Society of Medicine
This meeting aims to provide an overview of the latest research into the psychology of food choices. Areas covered will include the role of the hypothalamus, imaging of the brain's response to hunger, programming of appetite and obesity, the role of physical activity in controlling food cravings, mindless eating, the influence of sound, teenage eating, phenotypes and how we motivate people to change.
At the end of the meeting delegates will have gained a broad and up-to-date overview of the mechanisms that drive people to make food choices. They will have an understanding from this research as to what future research is needed and how we can implement in practice the knowledge that is already there.
