I am currently interested on implicit cognition in obesity. My laboratory has a greater tradition in implicit cognition in drug-addiction, especially attentional bias. However, both obesity and addictions are characterized by impulsiveness and dysfunction of the reward and emotional systems. Therefore, I am using this previous expertise to collaborate within a multidisciplinary group to study how people become obese.
