Our group investigates the relationship between nutrition and cognition, with a special emphasis on the underlying (neuro)biological and neurocomputational processes. Our perspective on the connection between nutrition and cognition is bi-directional: We investigate how nutritional decisions are made in the brain and how they can be changed, but also how our diet influences the brain and thus cognition, emotion, and behavior. We use methods developed in psychology, behavioral economics, neuroscience, and the nutritional sciences, including experimental paradigms, neuroimaging, biochemical/endocrinological measurements, and computational models. Unraveling the mechanisms that underlie nutrition-cognition interactions could contribute to changing decisions towards a health-promoting and sustainable diet.
