Changes in brain connectivity associated with food cravings

August 31, 2015

Obese individuals may be ‘hard-wired’ to crave specific food items, according to data recently presented at the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology Congress.

“There is an ongoing controversy over whether obesity can be called a ‘food addiction’, but in fact there is very little research which shows whether or not this might be true. The findings in our study support the idea that the reward processing following food stimulus in obesity is associated with neural changes similar to those found in substance addiction,” Oren Conreras-Rodriguez, PhD, department of psychiatry, Bellvitge Hospital, Spain, said in a press release.
