Does it work this way? Annette’s model tried and tested

deDeutsch

Annette’s pro­posed mod­el of how dopamin­er­gic tone varies (non-lin­ear­ly) across nor­mal weight, over­weight and obese peo­ple has been test­ed empir­i­cal­ly for the first time. Researchers in Spain con­duct­ed an fMRI exper­i­ment with which they con­firm Annette’s idea with real data: the reward sys­tem in the brain appears to func­tion dif­fer­ent­ly but sys­tem­at­i­cal­ly across peo­ple of dif­fer­ent weights.
