Abstract

Desire for food intake often arises to get rid of negative emotions. On the other hand, negative emotion like anxiety, also brings along psychological health issues. In such a situation it’s quite a feasible option to get rid of the worse before the bad. In this paper a cognitive agent model for food desire regulation is presented wherein Hebbian learning helps in breaking the bond between anxiety or stress and desire for food intake as a result. Simulation results of the model illustrate food desire and its regulation.
