If two different people were in a obtainable room with poker chips on the table, the individual with attentional bias will be paying interest to, looking at maybe, the chips and the individual without the bias wouldn’t normally really notice or focus on them. ‘We believe that there’s a group who are inherently delicate to meals cues and, as time passes, consuming in response to watching food makes them pay out a lot more attention.
