Scientific perspectives on the drive to consume were presented in Ann Arbor, Michigan, at the conference entitled “The Interdisciplinary Science of Consumption: Mechanisms of Allocating Resources Across Disciplines.” The meeting, which took place May 12–15, 2010 and was sponsored by Rackham Graduate School and the Department of Psychology at the University of Michigan, included presentations on human, primate, and rodent models and spanned multiple domains of consumption, including reward seeking, delay discounting, food-sharing reciprocity, and the consumption and display of material possessions across the life span.
