Food-related emotions in health and disease; Neurobiological and Psychological underpinnings of taste and odor perception.

The TiFN theme “Beyond Sensory and Liking” started August 2011. Most of the activities have ended in July 2016. TiFN organises an end-symposium to present and discuss the scientific highlights and industrial relevancy achieved within this theme.

The one-day program aims to discuss the interplay between sensory systems and foodrelated emotions, new measurement methodologies to study food-related emotions and neuronal activity with fMRI, and impact of age, gender and health on taste and odor perception, and implications for product development.

The symposium is accessible for researchers in the field of food science, industrial partners of TiFN and other interested parties.
