Dr. Burger’s primary area of research focuses on eating behavior, how it evolves, implicit drivers and explicit perceptions of food intake. Specifically, he studies how these aspects of ingestive behavior relate to habitual consumption, executive control and weight regulation. His lab also is interested in the impact of the current food environment on ingestive behavior. Dr. Burger examines these questions using direct and indirect measures of food intake, functional brain imaging techniques — particularly functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) — and a variety of behavioral and self-report measures.
