Obesity Linked to Changes in Brain Structure

T1-weighted brain MRI examples (coronal, top; axial, middle; and sagittal, bottom) of two participants in the UK biobank study (both women and age 65 years), one participant with a body fat percentage of 13 percent (left) and one participant with a body fat percentage of 49 percent (right). MRI image shows lower volumes of subcortical gray matter structures in the individual with higher total body fat percentage (right). Credit: Radiological Society of North America
