Appetite: Neural and Behavioural Bases

Charles R. Legg and David Booth


This is the first book to deal with both the psychological and neurobiological mechanisms in appetites for drugs, food, sex, and gambling, and considers whether there are common factors between them. The book approaches this by looking at the bases of both normal and abnormal appetites in humans.

Keywords: psychological mechanisms, neurobiological mechanisms, drugs, food, sex, gambling, common factors, human appetites
