Talk: First We Eat With Our Eyes: What Multisensory Research Has To
Say About How To Eat, Drink, & Be Merry

Speaker: Dr Kristie Dukewich, Department of Psychology

Abstract: People tend to think of eating as a unisensory experience – a process that only involves the sense of taste. However, eating and drinking are rich multisensory experiences, and research has show that the interaction of the senses produced an experience that is, at times, wholly different from the sum of its parts. In this talk I will present the research on how sensations from vision, audition, olfaction (smell), tactile (touch) perception, and gustation (taste) interact, and how we can exploit this research to enhance our experience of food and drink.
