  • Week 2: Physiology. Exploring the neurobiological and hormonal control of appetite. How the environment interacts with our physiology to influence food choice.
  • Week 3: Psychology. The psychological control of appetite. How cognition influences food choice.
  • Week 4: Stress. How early-life experience influences food choice in later life. Stress and emotional eating.
  • Week 5: Economics. How behavioural economics may deliver new ways of changing choice behaviour. Food insecurity and health inequities.
