Lab Update

We got another Book Chapter published. This chapter, entitled "When Taste Triggers Sociophobia", deals with the animal models of eating disorders and is getting published in the soon-to-be essential “Handbook of Behavior, Food and Nutrition".
Ok, it may sound a bit far from cyberbehavior ... but actually not, as it is the first of a series of two Book Chapters (I know they will be published in two different books, but still, they are complementary to each other), the second one (which I co-authored with my postdoc Anna) being dealing more with the multimodal aspects of food disorders. And this second chapter bridges in the same text animal studies and human reactions to virtual reality therapies in the context of eating disorders (yay, we did it! I know, said like that it sounds a bit artificial, but I guess you will have to read the two Book Chapters to see how we connected things together). So, one is now published, the second one is in the publisher and on its way (multi-authored books always take ages to get publish, it seems).
