New York, Mar 31 (USA Today):Obese people have weaker working memory and cognitive functions as compared with normal-weight people, according to a recent study published in JAMA Pediatrics, conducted at the Vermont University and the Yale University. This Research showed that overweight and obese people have a smaller prefrontal cortex than normal-weight people.

The thinner cortex could be a factor in the decreased executive function earlier studies observed among children with higher BMI. The study analyzed results from 3,190 nine- and 10-year-olds recruited at 21 ABCD sites in 2017.

The study was based on evidence over a 10-year cycle that tracked 10,000 teenagers and over 25,000 adults. Research participants were interviewed every 2-2.5 months, given a series of cognitive examinations, brain scans, and blood samples.

🙶 Our results show an important connection; that kids with higher BMI tend to have a thinner cerebral cortex, especially in the prefrontal area. 🙷
