It’s All In Your Head – Let’s Stimulate It A Bit
You’re overweight. But you know it and you are looking for anything that might help. How about checking the fridge door. Not what’s inside but what’s hanging on the outside. A magnet. CBS News says researchers believe people with obesity could benefit from magnetic stimulation of the brain to help them eat less.
The latest work on two noninvasive brain-stimulation techniques found both magnetic and electrical pulses yielded promising early results for people with obesity.
The main target of the brain stimulation is usually a region called the dorso-lateral prefrontal cortex, which is linked to dietary self-control.
