BACKGROUND Brain pathways contribute to the regulation of appetite behaviors, and advancements in brain imaging offer new opportunities in determining whether disturbances of these pathways play a role in pathological feeding behaviors in humans. We developed a standardized method for the assessment of brain activation in response to taste stimuli. METHODS Five healthy control women were positioned in a 1.5 T GE magnet resonance (MR) scanner for functional MR imaging (fMRI). They received 1.0… CONTINUE READING
