Taste & Flavor Psychology: Food for thought

The next episode in our exploration of the human senses: this time we dig into the psychology of taste. We discuss neurogastronomy, how emotions and sensations impact flavor, comfort foods, super tasters, picky eaters, food aversions, and Brian's stance on the best sodas. Let's chew on this topic together: Instagram: @talkpsychtomepodcast  Twitter: @talkpsych2me  Email: tp2mpodcast@gmail.com  Co-hosted by Brian Luna and Tania Luna  Theme music by Barrie Gledden, Kes Loy, and Richard Kimmings

Smell & Odor Psychology: The nose knows

Over the next few episodes, we'll be talking about the psychology of our senses. This week, we're stopping to admire and explore the little-known psychology of smell, including: smell evolution, odor evaluation, smell and memory, social odors, olfactory dysfunction, and the world's worst scent.

[RERUN] Aging: Water other people's tulips

Tania's birthday is this week, so we're rerunning our episode on the psychology of age and aging. Does being slightly older or slightly younger than your classmates in school impact you later in life? (Spoiler alert: yes!) What are some of the benefits of aging? And what advice do older adults have that we should all pay attention to today?

Cold & Flu Psychology: Nothing to sneeze at

In honor of Brian’s sniffles, we’re exploring the psychology of “sickness behavior.” What are the psychological symptoms of colds and flus? What makes some of us more susceptible to sickness than others? And is it possible that our germs are controlling our actions?
