Objective:There is evidence of altered neural taste response in female adolescents who are obese (OB), and in adolescents who are at risk for obesity. To further understand risk factors for the development of overeating and obesity, we investigated response to tastes of sucrose and water in 23 OB and healthy weight (HW) children.Methods and design:Thirteen HW and 10 OB 8–12-year-old children underwent functional magnetic resonance imaging while tasting sucrose and water. Additionally, children… CONTINUE READING
