Article of the Week
Don't Make Decisions When You're Hungry, Study Finds
A new study, published in the journal Psychonomic Bulletin & Review, found that hungry individuals make choices that sacrifice long-term benefit for a short-term gain. Researchers determined that the participants who fasted were more likely to prefer smaller-sooner rewards over larger-later rewards compared to their satiated counterparts. This finding may have important implications for chronically hungry individuals, such as the food insecure, who may make suboptimal decisions while hungry.
