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

  1. overweight and individuals suffering from obesity (in collaboration with Dr. Zoltan Pataky),
  2. patients with type 1 diabetes (in collaboration with Dr. Giacomo Gastaldi),
  3. 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).
