That the brain is involved in the pathogenesis and perpetuation of obesity is broadly self-intuitive, but traditional evaluation of this relationship has focused on psychological and environment-dependent issues, often referred to as the “it’s all in the head” axiom. Here we review evidence that excessive nutrition or caloric flux, regardless of its primary trigger, elicits a biological trap which imprints aberrant energy control circuits that tend to worsen with the accumulation of body fat… Expand
A Neurobehavioral Approach to Addiction: Implications for the Opioid Epidemic and the Psychology of Addiction
TLDR
The issue of predisposition or vulnerability to becoming addicted to drugs (i.e., the question of why some people who experiment with drugs develop an addiction, while others do not) is addressed. Expand
Liking, wanting, and the incentive-sensitization theory of addiction.
Rewards are both "liked" and "wanted," and those 2 words seem almost interchangeable. However, the brain circuitry that mediates the psychological process of "wanting" a particular reward isExpand
The role of neuroscience within psychology: A call for inclusiveness over exclusiveness.
TLDR
The present article appraise the increasingly prominent role of neuroscience within psychology and offers cautions and recommendations regarding the future of psychology as a field and argues for an interdisciplinary future for psychology in which the considerable strengths of neuroscience complement and extend the strengths of other subfields of psychology.

TLDR
The aim of this article is to illustrate some cases that might present as behavioral disorders but are in fact medical conditions. Expand
Bladder, Bowel, and Sexual Dysfunction in Parkinson's Disease
TLDR
The pathophysiology of the pelvic organ dysfunction in Parkinson's disease differs from that in multiple system atrophy; therefore, it might aid in differential diagnosis. Expand
Methadone dosage and its relationship to quality of life, satisfaction, psychopathology, cognitive performance and additional consumption of non-prescribed drugs.
TLDR
A negative relationship between dose and quality of life, psychopathological symptoms and cognitive performance is revealed, and the results reject the need for high dosage if not required by the patient, and highlight the benefits of other psychosocial interventions that lead to recovery. Expand
Neurologic disease attributed to a pituitary adenoma in an alpaca.
TLDR
A 14-year-old 80-kg castrated male Huacaya alpaca was evaluated because of a gradual onset of behavioral changes and an inflammatory or infectious disease process was suspected based on hyperfibrinogenemia and a leukocytosis characterized by neutrophilia with a regenerative left shift. Expand
Vaccines against Vice: A constructive technology assessment of immunotherapies for addiction
This thesis examines the development of active immunotherapies or ‘vaccines’ for drug addiction, within the framework of constructive technology assessment. Drawing on post-structuralist andExpand
Hidrocefalia congênita em cães Hydrocephalus Congenital in Dogs
TLDR
The clinical signs in dogs found in this study were changes in behavior and level of consciousness, characterized by drowsiness and/or hallucinations, and the importance of congenital hydrocephalus in the differential diagnosis of young dogs with neurological signs of cortical thalamus was highlighted. Expand
Systematic Review of Occupational Therapy in the Treatment of Addiction: Models, Practice, and Qualitative and Quantitative Research
TLDR
Although occupational therapy has been involved in the treatment of people with substance addiction and, more recently, with behavioral addictions for more than half a century, the research that has been published is poor. Expand

Cognitive and Emotional Alterations Are Related to Hippocampal Inflammation in a Mouse Model of Metabolic Syndrome
TLDR
Behavioral alterations of db/db mice were associated with increased inflammatory cytokines and reduced expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in the hippocampus but not the hypothalamus, which strongly point to interactions between cytokine and central processes involving the hippocampus as important contributing factor to the behavioral alterations ofdb/ db mice. Expand
Mood Disorders and Obesity: Understanding Inflammation as a Pathophysiological Nexus
TLDR
It is indicated that obesity and mood disorders are chronic low-grade pro-inflammatory states that result in a gradual accumulation of allostatic load and practitioners should screen individuals with obesity for the presence of clinically significant depressive symptoms. Expand
Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Reviews
TLDR
The role of stem cells as restorative treatments for basal ganglia disorders, including Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease and stroke, are discussed, with special emphasis to the recently investigated menstrual blood stem cells. Expand
A review of the association between obesity and cognitive function across the lifespan: implications for novel approaches to prevention and treatment
TLDR
It is suggested that weight gain results, at least in part, from a neurological predisposition characterized by reduced executive function, and in turn obesity itself has a compounding negative impact on the brain via mechanisms currently attributed to low‐grade systemic inflammation, elevated lipids and/or insulin resistance. Expand
Modifiable factors that alter the size of the hippocampus with ageing
TLDR
Observational studies and preliminary clinical trials have raised the possibility that physical exercise, cognitive stimulation and treatment of general medical conditions can reverse age-related atrophy in the hippocampus, or even expand its size, and the dynamic polygon hypothesis suggests that treatment of modifiable risk factors can increase the volume or prevent atrophy of the hippocampus. Expand
Leptin Replacement Improves Cognitive Development
TLDR
Replacement with r-metHuLeptin is associated with weight loss and changes in rates of development in many neurocognitive domains, which lends support to the hypothesis that, in addition to its role in metabolism, leptin may have a cognitive enhancing role in the developing central nervous system. Expand
Central obesity and the aging brain.
TLDR
A larger waist-hip ratio may be related to neurodegenerative, vascular, or metabolic processes that affect brain structures underlying cognitive decline and dementia. Expand
The effects of a high-energy diet on hippocampal function and blood-brain barrier integrity in the rat.
TLDR
The results indicate that hippocampal function may be particularly vulnerable to disruption by HE-diets, and this disruption may be related to impaired BBB integrity. Expand
Hypertension and the brain: vulnerability of the prefrontal regions and executive functions.
TLDR
Even controlled hypertension may be associated with deficits in brain structure and cognition, warranting further study. Expand
FTO, obesity and the adolescent brain.
TLDR
FTO is associated with shared inverse variance between body adiposity and brain volume, suggesting that this gene may exert inverse effects on adipose and brain tissues. Expand
