BACKGROUND The food addiction model proposes that obesity overlaps with addiction in terms of neurobiological alterations in the striatum and related clinical manifestations (i.e., craving and persistence of unhealthy habits). Therefore, we aimed to examine the functional connectivity of the striatum in excess-weight versus normal-weight subjects and to determine the extent of the association between striatum connectivity and individual differences in food craving and changes in body mass index… Expand
Food addiction linked to changes in ventral striatum functional connectivity between fasting and satiety
TLDR
Investigation of changes in striatal functional connectivity between fasted and fed conditions among adults ranging in body mass index (BMI) and FA symptoms finds heightened connectivity in the ventral striatum during a fasted state underpins symptoms of FA. Expand
Alterations in reward network functional connectivity are associated with increased food addiction in obese individuals
TLDR
Sex differences in functional connectivity suggest that females with food addiction engage more in emotional overeating and less cognitive control and homeostatic processing compared to males, which may have clinical implications for understanding the sex-dependent variability in response to diet interventions. Expand
Visceral adiposity and insular networks: associations with food craving
TLDR
It is suggested that visceral fat disrupts insula coding of bodily homeostatic signals, which may boost externally driven food cravings. Expand
Dysfunctional Brain Reward System in Child Obesity.
TLDR
Obese children showed functional structure alterations in the orbitofrontal cortex and amygdala region similar to those previously observed in primary obsessive-compulsive disorder and Prader-Willi syndrome associated with obsessive eating behavior, supporting the view that childhood obesity is not simply a deviant habit with restricted physical health consequences but is associated with reward system dysfunction characterizing behavioral control disorders. Expand
Homeostasis and food craving in obesity: a functional MRI study
TLDR
A reduced influence of homeostasis on neural processing during food craving in obesity is indicated, since this observation was independent from satiety status. Expand
A perspective on candidate neural underpinnings of Binge Eating Disorder: reward and homeostatic systems.
TLDR
Future studies should investigate BED related differences in rsFC within the reward system during hunger and satiety, in order to determine whether individuals with BED display an abnormal neural response to changes in homeostatic state. Expand
BDNF influences neural cue-reactivity to food stimuli and food craving in obesity
TLDR
The present findings implicate that BDNF levels in patients suffering from obesity might be involved in food craving and obesity in humans, and highlights the importance to consider BDNF pathways when investigating obesity and obesity treatment. Expand
Dysregulated resting state functional connectivity and obesity: A systematic review
TLDR
The results suggest obesity is associated with disrupted connectivity of brain networks responsible for cognition, reward, self-referential processing and emotional regulation. Expand
Psychological and Neurobiological Correlates of Food Addiction.
Food addiction (FA) is loosely defined as hedonic eating behavior involving the consumption of highly palatable foods (ie, foods high in salt, fat, and sugar) in quantities beyond homeostatic energyExpand
Striatal volume and functional connectivity correlate with weight gain in early-phase psychosis
TLDR
Evidence is provided for a correlation of striatal structure and function with antipsychotic-induced weight gain in patients with early-phase psychosis, with higher striatal connectivity associated with more weight gain, and this relationship was stronger for higher compared with lower left putamen volumes.

Cocaine-specific neuroplasticity in the ventral striatum network is linked to delay discounting and drug relapse.
TLDR
Cocaine dependence-related neuroadaptations in the ventral striatum of the brain network are associated with increased impulsivity and higher rate of cocaine relapse. Expand
Altered functional connectivity within the central reward network in overweight and obese women
TLDR
Overweight and obese women in the absence of food-related stimuli show significant structural and functional alterations within regions of reward-related brain networks, which may have a role in altered ingestive behaviors. Expand
Dorsal Striatum and Its Limbic Connectivity Mediate Abnormal Anticipatory Reward Processing in Obesity
TLDR
Findings suggest that enhanced sensitivity to external food cues in obesity may involve abnormal stimulus-response learning and incentive motivation subserved by the dorsal caudate nucleus, which in turn may be due to abnormally high input from the amygdala and insula and dysfunctional inhibitory control by the frontal cortical regions.

Relation Between Obesity and Blunted Striatal Response to Food Is Moderated by TaqIA A1 Allele
TLDR
Cross-sectional and prospective data from two functional magnetic resonance imaging studies support the hypothesis that individuals may overeat to compensate for a hypofunctioning dorsal striatum, particularly those with genetic polymorphisms thought to attenuate dopamine signaling in this region.

TLDR
It is shown that obesity and insulin levels influence brain function during rest in networks supporting reward and food regulation, complement and expand previous functional neuroimaging findings. Expand
Differential activation of the dorsal striatum by high-calorie visual food stimuli in obese individuals
TLDR
The results suggest that the observed activation is independent of the physiological states of hunger and satiation, and thus may contribute to pathological overeating and obesity. Expand
Obesity and addiction: neurobiological overlaps
TLDR
The combined results suggest that both obese and drug‐addicted individuals suffer from impairments in dopaminergic pathways that regulate neuronal systems associated not only with reward sensitivity and incentive motivation, but also with conditioning, self‐control, stress reactivity and interoceptive awareness. Expand
Addiction related alteration in resting-state brain connectivity
TLDR
Observations of altered resting-state functional connectivity suggested abnormal functional organization in the addicted brain and may provide additional evidence supporting the theory of addiction that emphasizes enhanced salience value of a drug and its related cues but weakened cognitive control in the addictive state.

Widespread reward-system activation in obese women in response to pictures of high-calorie foods
TLDR
Compared to normal-weight controls, obese women exhibited greater activation in response to pictures of high-calorie foods in a large number of regions hypothesized to mediate motivational effects of food cues. Expand
The Addictive Dimensionality of Obesity
TLDR
There is increasing evidence that disruption of energy homeostasis can affect the Reward circuitry and that overconsumption of rewarding food can lead to changes in the reward circuitry that result in compulsive food intake akin to the phenotype seen with addiction. Expand
