I'm Guido Camps, a PhD Student at Wageningen University & Research Center. My background is one of applied cognitive psychology, mainly researching (food) marketing and, surprisingly, veterinary medicine.
My research in Wageningen will focus on figuring out what differences there are to be found between oro-sensory (what you taste in your mouth) and gastric (what you ‘feel’ in your stomach) responses to eating. In order to figure this out I’ll be making use of fMRI, a technique which allows us to visualise how much blood the tissues in our brain are using, thereby giving a hint on how our brain responds to food.
Amazing skills and abilities:
Eye-tracking research, computer science, swarm intelligence, food choice, fMRI and gastric anatomical MRI, veterinary medicine, epidemiology and baking
