title
Self-Regulatory Brain Networks of Eating Behavior
author
Paolini, Brielle Marie
abstract
Obesity is currently a public health crisis in North America not sparing the rapidly expanding population of older adults. While lifestyle interventions remain the most popular treatment for obesity, many individuals fail to monitor their eating behavior and lose weight. The over-reaching purpose of this thesis was to elucidate a brain network of self-regulatory failure among older adults predictive of real-world weight loss.
