Default Tasting Food May Cause Elevated Brain Activity in the Obese

[Presentation title: "Taste and Obesity: A Positron Emission
Tomography (PET) Study of the Brain Regions Affected by Tasting a
Liquid Meal after a Prolonged Fast." Abstract #OR19-4]

By Mike Fillon

NEW ORLEANS, LA -- June 18, 2004 -- The activity of some brain regions
is especially high in obese individuals compared to the nonobese, in
particular those regions involved in generating emotions in response
to and in recognition of the taste of food.

This concept is certainly nothing new. Pavlov already proved the theory of
conditioned physical response to external stimuli many, many years ago!
This is just somebody trying to twist it into saying that fat people's
brains are somehow wired diffently -- when it's just conditioned pleasurable
response to food. We can certainly condition ourselves to NOT respond to
the stimuli of food as well, which was the whole point of Pavlov's
experiments.
