Project description

This multidisciplinary project aims to prove that studying emotion regulation for restoring the psychological and physiological homeostasis is a promising progress for a profound understanding of the obesity problem. We aim to exceed current expertise on obesity with various complementary study designs: casecontrol, lab-study and a randomized-clinical-trial. Evidence will come from psychological and physiological outcome measures.
