Thinking Through Overeating

A Science on Tap Event
Obesity ultimately arises from chronic imbalances between energy intake and expenditure. New research has focused on the role of the brain in evaluating the rewarding properties of food, and making decisions about what and how much to eat. Using the technology of functional MRI, scientists hope to understand how brain function makes a diet successful. For this Science on Tap, Cary Savage of the KU Center for Health Behavior Neuroscience will lead a conversation about the brain, and what images of the brain reveal about the choices we make.
