Hunger is a familiar but commonly misunderstood and mistrusted part of our eating behavior. This article will clarify the meaning of the term, describe the common procedures for measuring hunger, the ways in which hunger and satiety are interrelated, and the adaptability of hunger experience in a learning framework. The relationship between hunger and eating behavior will be examined at both a methodological and conceptual level, and putative disorders of hunger will be briefly examined.
