Appetite: Neural and Behavioural Bases by Charles R. Legg, David Booth

As psychologists and neurobiologists increasingly find common ground in their studies of appetite, the need for an interdisciplinary treatment of the subject becomes more and more urgent. Appetite: Neural and Behavioural Bases fills the gap and provides an authoritative overview of all aspects of the subject, including eating, sexual behavior, drug addiction, and gambling. The book highlights how psychological research has uncovered cues that guide appetitive behavior as well as the cognitive mechanisms that influence choice of action. It also offers a splendid survey of what neuroscience research has discovered about the neural substrates underlying appetitive behavior. Students, researchers, and clinicians interested in the many issues surrounding appetite will welcome this unified introduction to the subject.
