The function of the brain is a hungry man change much at the sight of food, says the publication Current Biology. To such conclusion the group of researchers in Boston.
Scientists conducted an experiment with laboratory rats. Animals taught appearance to determine the type of food: sweet or bitter it. If rodents were hungry, the brain response to food was special. For example, the same parts of the nervous system signal about the feeling of hunger and thirst.
Apparently, similar processes occur in the human brain. Scientists suggest, the stronger the feeling of hunger, the more generalized reactions produces nervous system. The work done allows a deeper insight into reactions occurring in nutritional disorders.
