    The morphology of the brain respond to specific stimuli across the lifespan. Rajiy al (2010) used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to evaluate functional atrophy volume of gray and white matter in 94 adults (average age 77 years). The results indicated that the body mass index (BMI), insulin levels, and fasting plasma type 2 diabetes were strongly associated with atrophy of the frontal, temporal and subcortical brain regions. These data indicate that being overweight or obese may be associated with marked reductions in brain volume and provides a greater understanding of the underlying obesity-related changes in cognitive dysfunction causes. Since several brain regions in which a decrease was demonstrated in brain volume are associated with attention, memory and control of cognition, can be expected deficiencies related to obesity in cognitive and educational performance mediated by these brain regions.
