Our nutrition influences countless processes in the body - including the brain, because its function is closely linked to metabolic processes. At the same time, the decisions about our nutrition are made in the brain. These connections raise fascinating questions: How does nutrition influence our decisions and our behaviour? Why do we decide for or against a certain diet or product? Can the knowledge gained be used to influence decisions and consumer behaviour in a health-promoting way?

Soyoung Q Park, Professor at the German Institute of Human Nutrition Potsdam-Rehbrücke (DIfE) and Charité Berlin, heads the newly created Department of Neuroscience of Decision and Nutrition. She was a Fellow at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain at Humboldt University, was responsible for neuroeconomic research projects at the University of Zurich and headed the Social Psychology and Neuroscience of Decision at the Institute of Psychology at the University of Lübeck.
