My current research is focused on understanding the neural correlates of (impaired) decision-making in eating behavior. We aim to disentangle the complexity of the underlying processes driving food consumption. For this purpose we will administer primary reinforcers using an array of pumps delivering liquids during functional MRI scans. Combining fMRI with additional physiological data such as pupilometery, heart rate and skin conductance we will study possible contributing factors for problematic eating, such as visceral cues, emotions and reinforcement learning.
