Are Visceral Factors Sensitive to Attentional Focus Manipulation? the Case of Hunger

EXTENDED ABSTRACT - In the last decade, important efforts have been made to address the need to understand better the operation of Avisceral factors@ in accounting for behaviors that appear to be out of the strict control of reason. While the bulk of recent research efforts to tackle the effects of visceral factors on consumer behavior has focused exclusively on mood and emotions, visceral factors like drives (e.g. hunger, thirst, sexual desire) have been relatively neglected. The current paper has for object one of such drives namely, hunger.
