Appetite and food intake; behavioral and physiological considerations.


Appetite and food intake; behavioral and physiological considerations.

Ed. by Ruth B.S. Harris and Richard D. Mattes.

CRC / Taylor & Francis


360 pages




Thirty-three international academics and researchers contribute 18 chapters focusing on the psychological and biological determinants of feeding, the governing influences when food availability is not limiting. The text highlights the synergies and gaps between approaches using animal models and human trials by presenting pairs of chapters that address the same topic from both perspectives. Coverage includes mechanisms that control food intake; the role played by appetitive cues; preingestive motivational, cognitive, and orosensory processes influencing food acquisition; the processing of ingesta; intestinal and postabsorptive signaling systems and metabolism; and the micro- and macronutrient composition of foods linked to ingestive behavior and the physiologic consequences of consumption. For researchers, academics, graduate students, and related professionals, such as nurses and dietitians.
