Acclaimed Neuroscientist to visit Tidewater

by | Dec 10, 2018 | What’s Happening

Thursday, January 10, 12 pm | Sandler Family Campus

$12 Lunch; $30 Lunch and signed book
Bundled Registration for lunch and a signed book closes January 3

Author and neuroscientist Rachel Herz will participate in a panel discussion with Tom Purcell, Simon Family JCC’s membership and wellness director, and Sandra Porter Leon, MS, RDN.

In her book, Why You Eat What You Eat: The Science Behind Our Relationship with Food, Herz examines the sensory, psychological, neuroscientific, and physiological factors that influence eating habits. In the book, she also shares useful techniques for improving the experience of food—such as how aromas can help curb cravings and tips on how to resist repeated trips to the buffet table. Weaving curious findings and compelling facts into a narrative that tackles important questions, Herz reveals the factors that can shape relationships with food, and how food alters relationships with others. Herz will sign books following the luncheon.
