Late-life obesity is associated with smaller global and regional gray matter volumes: a voxel-based morphometric study

Abstract

OBJECTIVE:Obesity adversely affects frontal lobe brain structure and function. Here we sought to show that people who are obese versus those who are of normal weight over a 5-year period have differential global and regional brain volumes.DESIGN:Using voxel-based morphometry, contrasts were done between those who were recorded as being either obese or of… (More)
