How to encourage healthy and sustainable diet: understanding how information affects sociocultural, cognitive, and neural underpinnings of food choice.

We investigate how concepts of healthiness/sustainability guide food choice and whether the choice can be modified. With Electroencephalography, we examine the neural mechanism of induced food-choice changes to provide deeper understanding of how to improve eating behavior. Participants’ electroencephalography will be recorded while they undergo semantic congruency task, followed by behavioral implicit/explicit measures and a behavioral-choice task, before and after an evaluative-conditioning intervention. The intervention aims at modifying the link between concepts of healthiness/sustainability and food-items. We target neural markers that tracks the conflict between food-items and food-related information. The change in behavioral-choice after the intervention should be the result of changes in the targeted neural signatures. Samples from Italy and Taiwan will be included to compare the role of cultural context against a more general neural underpinning in food choices.
