Is your memory not as good as it used to be? You may soon be able to remember things you have long forgotten. This is based on a discovery that was made by researchers who were trying to suppress a fat man's appetite!
In the January 30th edition of the Independent, Jeremy Laurance writes, "Scientists performing experimental brain surgery on a man aged 50 have stumbled across a mechanism that could unlock how memory works." They put electrodes into his brain, which were then stimulated with an electric current. But instead of losing his appetite, the patient began to remember a scene from 30 years ago, in intricate detail. Further tests showed that his memory had improved in general. This could have important applications for people with Alzheimer's disease.
When it comes to dieting, many popular diet plans are based on changing the proportion of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats one ingests as a method to lose weight. There has been some controversy regarding the effectiveness of these diets, but a new study shows why eating more protein and fewer carbs helps you lose weight.
This study examined the relative ability of different food types to suppress ghrelin, which is secreted by the stomach and is the only known appetite-stimulating hormone. Ghrelin levels increase shortly before meals and then decrease promptly after ingestion of food.
Researcher Karen Foster-Schubert says, "We found that when fat is consumed, levels of ghrelin remain relatively high, which could in turn stimulate hunger. Protein consumption resulted in the greatest suppression of ghrelin over a long period and, interestingly, consumption of carbohydrates resulted in a strong ghrelin suppression initially, although subsequent ghrelin levels rebounded well above baseline." In other words, you're hungry again soon.
