Recently, the Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging released an article that used DTI (Diffusion Tenor Imaging) techniques to analyze the brain matter of obese and non-obese volunteers. Their results showed significant changes comparing obese volunteers to non-obese volunteers.
Scans showed those with higher BMI (body mass index) showed decreased brain circuit function with areas controlling reward seeking inhibition, motivation/drive and learning/conditioning. Using these changed brain circuits may help decrease obesity rates.
