Inaugural Lecture

Professor Suzanne Higgs
Professor in the Psychobiology of Appetite
School of Psychology

Lecture Synopsis

What we eat and how much we eat affects our health and well-being, yet we are only beginning to understand the complexity of appetite control. Physiological responses to the presence of food in the stomach are an important determinant of appetite, but Professor Higgs will present evidence that psychological processes such as learning, memory and attention play a critical role in our dietary decisions. Professor Higgs will also discuss the implications of her findings for the design of novel healthy eating interventions. 

A complimentary drinks reception will follow in the Hills Building reception.
