COREDEC: Computational modelling of reward-related and decision-making processes in patients with obesity and eating disorder (Dr. Jane Neumann, completed)
The main question of the study is whether obese persons have learnt to decide if and what to eat differently than persons of normal weight. Scientists also try to find out which processes in the brain are responsible for these mechanisms of decision making, and how they can be influenced and be made visible via diagnostic means of imaging.
