The Food Research Laboratory conducts research on eating behaviour and physical activity. Our research applies cognitive psychological theory and experimental methodology to the study of health behaviours, such as snacking, dieting, exercise, food cravings and energy drink consumption.
The Laboratory facilities are conducive to individual and small group testing. The laboratory space comprises individual, partitioned work stations equipped with computers and touch screens. There is also a separate kitchen facility with a fridge, freezer, oven, cooktop, sink and bench-tops to enable the preparation and storage of food and beverages used in this research.
