We’re thrilled to welcome Dr Maartje Spetter to our research team.
Maartje is a nutritional neuroscientist. Her research is mostly focused on understanding how the human brain represents eating behaviour, as well as the relationship between the brain and obesity. In particular, Maartje is interested in the neural circuits of taste, smell, and flavour preferences, and the interaction between metabolic signals, neural responses, and food intake.
Maartje will be working on a BBSRC grant entitled “Interactions between metabolic, cognitive and reward processes in appetite”.
