About this product
- DescriptionMultisensory Flavor Perception: From Fundamental Neuroscience Through to the Marketplace provides state-of-the-art coverage of the latest insights from the rapidly-expanding world of multisensory flavor research. The book highlights the various types of crossmodal interactions, such as sound and taste, and vision and taste, showing their impact on sensory and hedonic perception, along with their consumption in the context of food and drink. The chapters in this edited volume review the existing literature, also explaining the underlying neural and psychological mechanisms which lead to crossmodal perception of flavor. The book brings together research which has t been presented before, making it the first book in the market to cover the literature of multisensory flavor perception by incorporating the latest in psychophysics and neuroscience.
- Author BiographyProf. Betina Piqueras-Fiszman is Assistant Professor in the Marketing and Consumer Behaviour group at Wageningen University. Previously she worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Oxford. She specializes in food sensory science and consumer behavior. Her research focuses on the exploration of new ways to understand food perception, preferences, and motivations. She currently coordinates and teaches courses around these topics at Wageningen University and participates in related courses in other universities. She is currently working in several research projects in the interface between food technology, human nutrition, and consumer behavior to promote more pleasant and healthier eating experiences and undertaking a wide range of collaborations with multinational companies.
