    26th Annual Meeting of the Society for the Study of Ingestive Behavior
    July 17 - 21, 2018
    Bonita Springs, Florida

    A series of seminal papers in our field, selected and introduced by SSIB members and available to all. The “classics” provide important historical context, both on the concepts upon which their work and hypotheses were based and on the results and standards of interpretation that the authors considered critical.
