Food reward is an important concept for research in eating behaviours. Many food reward tasks have been developed and are in active use. However, little is known how much these tasks overlap. Here, we sought to compare three promising food reward tasks: 1) the Leeds Food Preference Questionnaire (LFPQ; a procedure combining explicit ratings of wanting and liking and an implicit wanting task based on forced choice), 2) a hand grip force task, and 3) an emotional attentional blink (EAB) task. Spec...

Obesity has inconsistent associations with broad personality domains, possibly because the links pertain to only some facets of these domains. Collating published and unpublished studies (N = 14 848), we meta-analysed the associations between body mass index (BMI) and Five-Factor Model personality domains as well as 30 Five-Factor Model personality facets. At the domain level, BMI had a positive association with Neuroticism and a negative association with Conscientiousness domains. At the facet ...

Studies have pointed to the role of the brain in mediating the effects of the social environment of the developing child on life outcomes. Since brain development involves nonlinear trajectories, these effects of the child9s social context will likely have age-related differential associations with the brain. However, there is still a dearth of integrative research investigating the interplay between neurodevelopmental trajectories, social milieu and life outcomes. We set out to fill this gap, f...

Abstract Automatic detection of important and unexpected stimuli in the visual environment is crucial for survival. We sought to explore whether visual food stimuli are detected already in the pre-attentive stimulus processing phase, and whether hunger enhances such automatic detection. To attain these goals, we adapted an electroencephalography paradigm - visual mismatch negativity (vMMN). vMMN is a useful paradigm to study the processing of salient emotional stimuli which has not yet been appl...

Here we test the hypothesis that the neurodegenerative process in Parkinson’s disease (PD) moves stereotypically along neural networks, possibly reflecting the spread of toxic alpha-synuclein molecules. PD patients (n = 105) and matched controls (n = 57) underwent T1-MRI at entry and 1 year later as part of the Parkinson’s Progression Markers Initiative. Over this period, PD patients demonstrate significantly greater cortical thinning than controls in parts of the left occipital and bilateral fr...
