In a recent study, researchers found that changes to hormones in brain caused by obesity and weight gain, may harm memory, and could influence people to eat more and gain more weight. The association between weight and dysfunction in areas of the brain is not a new one, but now a new study in England has found adults with higher BMI's have worse episodic memory when tested. This study, which was published in the Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology, included over 45 participants between the ages of 18 and 35 with BMI between 18 and 51.
