The modern food landscape boasts an abundance of cheap and palatable high-caloric foods. However, not everyone overeats and develops obesity, suggesting large individual differences exist in how one navigates and responds to the current 'obesogenic' food environment. A recent finding suggests a possible underlying source of these differences is an individual’s so-called food spatial memory biases. Yet literature on biases in food spatial memory in humans, and its potential dietary consequences within the context of a modern food setting, is at present lacking.
