Why am I hungry? Role of energy balance and socio-psychological beliefs around hunger.
Shyanne’s PhD work focuses on examining the conflict between the concept of hunger as a regulatory energy balancing process and the more multi-dimensional view of hunger resulting from a range of socio-psychological learned behaviours and experiences. The impact of learned behaviour on individuals sharing common socio-psychological beliefs will be explored and measured by their attitudes and behaviours around their experience of hunger.
