Food and Mind. The mechanisms that guide food choices | Rovereto, 29 October 2019

Public meeting on the sidelines of the Mimo Mind in Mouth workshop, an extraordinary dialogue between Cognitive Neuroscience, Sensory Sciences and the Clinical field, aimed to study the influence of sensory, affective and more generally, cognitive mechanisms on food preferences and on dysfunctional behaviors. The "multisensory" character of perception on which the attribution of meaning to the perceptionis based, and how this can be at the basis of pathological forms of nutrition makes the picture even more complex. For this reason, the research activity cannot ignore a strongly multidisciplinary approach that combines the skills and methodologies of Cognitive Neuroscience with Sensory Sciences, in order to provide possible suggestions to be applied in different areas of daily life, including that clinical.
