The reward center in the brain lights up in response to both hyperpalatable food and drugs. This is one of the many reasons why people cannot refuse to eat food that is put in front of them. As a result, they become trapped into eating such food.
Answer all of the following questions, and make sure to incorporate all of the following concepts where relevant, as well as their definitions/explanations, in your answers: “conditioned hypereating,” “priming,” “abstinence violation,” “setting condition,” “transition emotions,” amygdal, and “vagabond feeding.”

Why do people develop a disorder called conditioned hypereating and how do people come to be trapped into eating hyperpalatable foods?

How and why does culture have an effect on overeating?
