2011/07 - Annual meeting of the Socitey For the Study of Food Ingestive Behavior in USA

Between the 12th and 16th of July 2011, the Society for the Study of Ingestive Behaviour (SSIB), organised its 19th annual meeting in Clearwater in Florida, USA. SSIB is an organization committed to advancing scientific research on food and fluid intake and its associated biological, psychological and social processes.

Ms Eloïse Remy, a HabEat PhD student at INRA in Dijon, France, attended this meeting:

“Take part to such international conferences allowed me to learn more about my research field “Food preferences and regulation of food intake”. I presented during a poster session the first results of the task 3.1 HabEat study “Reinstating learned control of food intake”. The poster title was “Food intake regulation in children: relation to age”. This study aimed to evaluate such a regulation in children by measuring caloric compensation (CC) and eating in the absence of hunger (EAH) and to analyse if CC and EAH vary with age. It was for me a great opportunity of free exchange of ideas and information.”
