Thesis title

Revisiting Perceived Hunger; Examining the Role of Socio-Psychological Influences and Energy Balance.

Summary of Research

Shyanne’s PhD work focuses on examining the conflict between the concept of hunger as a regulatory energy balancing process and the more multi-dimensional view incorporating broader cognitive influences. The impact learned behaviour and socio-psychological beliefs have on common daily experiences of hunger and appetite will be explored and measured.

Shyanne is a member of our Societies Research Area which forms part of our ARU Centre for Societies and Groups.
