Research

Paul Smeets is assistant professor at the UMC Utrecht and has a background in Behavioral Biology. His PhD work, which was a collaboration between TNO Quality of Life (former TNO Nutrition and Food Research) and the Image Sciences Institute (ISI), aimed at finding biomarkers of satiety in the human brain, using functional MRI. Currently, he works at ISI / UMC Utrecht and at the Division of Human Nutrition of Wageningen University. The central theme in his research is the decision to eat, which is taken in the brain on the basis of multiple neural as well as hormonal signals. Research topics include the neural correlates of taste, satiety and (un)healthy food choice, gut-brain interactions, effects of personality characteristics on food-induced brain responses and functional neuroimaging in anorexia nervosa.
