Mediation refers to the question through which mechanism an independent variable transmits its effect on a dependent variable. Moderation refers to the question under which circumstances or for whom an independent variable has an effect on a dependent variable. Both concepts can be combined to a conditional process analysis (i.e., moderated mediation). In this talk, I will present conceptual and practical aspects of such analyses. Furthermore, I will show the merit of such analyses by providing empirical examples from eating behavior research. Specifically, I will demonstrate how mediation effects and moderation effects can be integrated into a moderated mediation model and how such a model provides a more comprehensive picture of relationships between different variables that appear to be unrelated at first glance. These include relationships between impulsivity, eating behavior, and body weight as well as relationships between trait and state chocolate craving, hunger, and implicit food evaluations.
