Description - Multisensory Flavor Perception by Betina Piqueras-Fiszman

Multisensory Flavor Perception: From Fundamental Neuroscience Through to the Marketplace provides state-of-the-art coverage of the latest insights from the rapidly-expanding world of multisensory flavor research. The book highlights the various types of crossmodal interactions, such as sound and taste, and vision and taste, showing their impact on sensory and hedonic perception, along with their consumption in the context of food and drink.

The chapters in this edited volume review the existing literature, also explaining the underlying neural and psychological mechanisms which lead to crossmodal perception of flavor. The book brings together research which has not been presented before, making it the first book in the market to cover the literature of multisensory flavor perception by incorporating the latest in psychophysics and neuroscience.

Previously she worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Oxford. She specializes in food sensory science and consumer behavior. Her research focuses on the exploration of new ways to understand food perception, preferences, and motivations. She currently coordinates and teaches courses around these topics at Wageningen University and participates in related courses in other universities. She is currently working in several research projects in the interface between food technology, human nutrition, and consumer behavior to promote more pleasant and healthier eating experiences and undertaking a wide range of collaborations with multinational companies. Prof. Charles Spence is an experimental psychologist at the University of Oxford. He is the director of the Future of Food Research group as well as being the head of the Crossmodal Research group which specializes in the research about the integration of information across different sensory modalities. He also teaches Experimental Psychology to undergraduates at Somerville College. He is currently a consultant for a number of multinational companies advising on various aspects of multisensory design. He has also conducted research on human-computer interaction issues on the Crew Work Station on the European Space Shuttle, and currently works on problems associated with the design of foods that maximally stimulate the senses, and with the effect of the indoor environment on mood, well-being, and performance. Charles has published more than 200 articles in top-flight scientific journals over the last decade. He has been awarded the 10th Experimental Psychology Society Prize, the British Psychology Society: Cognitive Section Award, the Paul Bertelson Award, recognizing him as the young European Cognitive Psychologist of the Year, and, most recently, the prestigious Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in Germany.
