Nerve food

Our brain decides what we eat. At the same time, our diet influences countless processes in the body as well as in the brain, because its function is closely interconnected with metabolic processes. These connections raise fascinating questions:
How does nutrition shape our decisions and behavior? Why do we decide for or against a certain diet or a certain product? Can the knowledge gained be used to influence decisions and consumer behaviour in a way that promotes health?

Prof. Soyoung Q Park teaches at the Charité Berlin and heads the Department of Neuroscience of Decision and Nutrition at the German Institute of Human Nutrition Potsdam-Rehbrücke (DIfE). She was also responsible for neuroeconomic research projects at the University of Zurich and was Professor of Social Psychology & Neuroscience of Decision at the Institute of Psychology at the University of Lübeck.
