Food perception and obesity
In this research project, we are currently studying the cognitive and neural processes associated with implicit and explicit processing of food stimuli. Moreover, we are also investigating the behavioural and neurofunctional effects of deep repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (deep rTMS) on implicit and explicit attitudes towards food in obese patients.
This research project is the result of the collaboration with Prof. Livio Luzi and Dr. Anna Ferrulli of the endocrinology Unit of Policlinico San Donato.
