Hypotheses/Aim(s) of Study In both groups’ratings of likelihood of choice and in sugar drink users’ estimates of energy content, sweetness andlabelled calories were usually treated as separate stimuli or ideas. In contrast, some female diet drinkusers treated sweetness and perceived calories as the same, whereas no male sugar drink user did. Suchfindings illustrate how this approach spans the gap between sensory perception and conceptualisedknowledge.
