Ready To Eat…Now, All Done

Assistant professor Eric Hodges is currently conducting research into the ways mothers respond to the hunger and fullness cues their infants and toddlers present. The goal of his study is to determine whether a mother’s response plays a role in childhood obesity as the child ages and to identify ways to change those behaviors, if needed.

Hodges conducts his research in the recently-completed behavioral observation laboratory in the School of Nursing’s Biobehavioral Laboratory. Housed inside Carrington Hall, this space gives study participants a relaxed environment in which to interact and allows Hodges to observe their behaviors in a non-invasive way.

The School of Nursing has produced a documentary, highlighting the benefits and unique nature of this lab. With Hodges’ research as a backdrop, you will be taken into this new facility to see how nurse researchers develop knowledge that translates evidence into practice.  Enjoy!
