Bonn-Melbourne Seminar Series in Decision Making and Computational Psychiatry

Individual Differences in (Dietary) Decision Making and Its Control: Connecting the Brain and Gut to Improve our Understanding of Behavior

Hilke Plassmann

INSEAD’s Octapharma Chair in Decision Neuroscience, Fontainebleau, France


In this talk, I review my previous and on-going work on modelling (dietary) decision-making and its control and what the underlying neural signatures are. I then show examples on how these brain models can be applied to investigate individual differences in self-control in obesity. I wrap up with suggestions what role the gut-brain axis might play.

About the series:
The Bonn-Melbourne Seminar Series in Decision Making and Computational Psychiatry is part of the joint doctoral training and research collaboration at the intersection of decision neuroscience and computational psychiatry between the University of Bonn (spokesperson: Ulrich Ettinger) and the University of Melbourne (spokesperson: Carsten Murawski).

The online seminars take place on Thursdays at 9:00 am (CEST)/6 pm (AEDT). Talks are 45 minutes long plus 15 minutes for questions and discussion. The target audience consists of students, PhD students, postdocs and researchers from both Bonn and Melbourne who have an interest in decision-making and computational psychiatry research.
