The Brain and the Diet

Brain Dialogues – Meeting of Different Minds cycle

Event Slider

Our perception of food depends on various senses, not just on taste. One might say that the pleasure we get from a good meal is in the brain – which is part of this multi-sensory experience – and not in the mouth. In this conference, neuroscientist Carlos Ribeiro, who studies the neural circuits of eating behaviour, talks with Chef José Avillez about how we experience food.
