Aukje presents research at ARPH conference

On February 2nd and 3rd, the ARPH (Association for Researchers in Psychology and Health) conference took place in Leiden. As every year, this conference provided a great overview of the state-of-the-art research concerning health psychology in the Netherlands and Belgium.

In the session concerning ‘Making healthy food choices’, Aukje presented her latest work, entitled ‘Why health warnings fail to change cue-elicited food-seeking behavior’. In this research she used a PIT task to demonstrate how stimuli in the environment interfere with goal-directed behavior, which could make health warnings ineffective in the presence of food-associated stimuli.
