Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Brain alterations detected in obese children

(IMIM (Hospital del Mar Medical Research Institute)) The alterations detected link obesity to a brain condition similar to obsessive-compulsive disorder, which affects the same areas of the brain. Researchers analysed images of the brains of 230 children obtained by functional magnetic resonance imaging. This was the first study of these features in children. They believe the findings underscore the need for early intervention in child obesity, in order to prevent the alterations from becoming fixed in children's developing brains.
