Thématique : Compréhension des mécanismes perceptifs et cognitifs sous-jacents aux choix alimentaires chez l’adulte, en particulier les mécanismes dépendants de l’expérience liée à l’environnement social et culturel.

L'équipe en détail Ouvrir tous les onglets


Les travaux de l’équipe s’articulent autour de 2 thèmes principaux :

thème 1 : Mécanismes perceptifs et cognitifs sous-tendant la perception et la description des aliments

  • – Effet de l’expertise sur la catégorisation des aliments et des boissons (prototype vs exemplaires ou théories naïves)
  • – Effet du contexte sur la perception des aliments et des boissons (perception cross-modale, effets sémantiques)
  • – Effet de l’expertise sur les interactions chimio-sensorielles (perception analytique vs holistique, appariement boissons-aliments)
  • – Effet de la culture et de l’expertise sur la représentation de concepts mal définis (minéralité, qualité, oxydation prématurée, texture)
  • – Rôle du langage dans la perception du vin : comparaison entre culture (France vs Afrique du Sud, France vs Chine)

thème 2 : Le rôle de l’environnement socio culturel sur les représentations et les comportements alimentaires :

  • – Comprendre les représentations de l’alimentation pour faciliter l'appropriation de ressource alimentaire locale par les consommateurs à Madagascar
  • – Effet de la culture sur les motivations (sensorielle, affective et symbolique) sous-jacentes aux choix alimentaires et méthodes de cuisson des aliments
  • – Représentations sociales de boissons artisanales et industrielles au Mexique (bière, mezcal, téquila)
  • – Rôle de la familiarité et des attitudes et croyances dans l’acceptation des protéines végétales (yaourt soja, yaourt pois …)

Nous utilisons une approche interdisciplinaire associant des méthodes issues de la psychologie cognitive et sociale, de l’ethnographie et de l’évaluation sensorielle.
