Obesity and cognitive dysfunction

Abstract


Obesity takes epidemic proportions, encompassing different groups of society. In turn, cerebrovascular pathology holds a leading position in the spectrum of neurological disorders. Researchers indicate a role of obesity in the development of cognitive impairment. However, the cellular and biochemical mechanisms underlying that connection are still poorly understood. In addition, despite the obvious association of obesity with the deterioration of mental activity demonstrated in clinical trials for a long time it was unclear whether these disorders are caused by obesity per se or related conditions, such as metabolic syndrome, diabetes or cardiovascular disease. Currently there is scarse systematic data on a cause-effect relationships of these two pathologies.
