Facility

Weighing foodExperiments are conducted in the Laboratory for the Study of Human Ingestive Behavior on the PSU, University Park campus.

The lab has been designed for the study of eating behavior and is divided into 16 cubicles and a fully-equipped kitchen. Subjects eat their meals in a cubicle equipped with an electrical switch that activates a light in the kitchen to signal the experimenter when eating or questionnaires are completed.

The kitchen area, where food prep is conducted, is fully equipped with industrial-grade stoves, oven, microwaves, refrigerators, freezers, and analytical balances.
