Does Liking Or Wanting Determine Inter-Stimulus Intervals in Food Intake?

Many factors influence repeated food consumption. We show that the decrease in liking that accompanies increased consumption of food significantly impacts the inter-stimulus interval (the amount of time that passes before individuals choose to consume this food again) for novel, but not familiar, foods. Ongoing work and conclusions are outlined.
