Senses and Food 

leader: professor Mari Sandell, Department of Food and Nutrition 


Senses and food team is fascinated by the interaction between human behaviour and sensory food perception. Our research is focused on 1) multisensory perception including senses of smell, taste, sight, touch and hearing, 2) the relationship between individual differences in sensory perception and food consumption, 3) sensory based food education both for children and adults. Team members are working at the University of Helsinki and at the University of Turku.
