Food preferences firmly in view
The gaze of another influences food choice. Thus, a food gains greater value when previously viewed by another person. This has been discovered by a research team from DIfE, Universität zu Lübeck and Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin. The results of the study have now been published in the journal Scientific Reports.
The mission of the German Institute of Human Nutrition Potsdam-Rehbruecke (DIfE) is to conduct experimental and clinical research in the field of nutrition and health. Scientists at the DIfE pursue these scientific goals by interdisciplinary cooperation comprising a broad spectrum of experimental, medical and epidemiological methods.
Therefore the researchers focus on three areas:
The aim is to understand the molecular basis of nutrition-dependent diseases, and to develop new strategies for prevention, treatment, and nutritional recommendations.
DIfE is an independent foundation and member of the Leibniz Association, an alliance of scientific institutions.
