Several of us will be in Atlanta for the annual meeting of The Obesity Society (link at: http://www.obesity.org/meetings-and-events/annual-meeting.htm). Dr. Spitznagel will be presenting her work showing that better cognitive function leads to better weight loss. Mike Alosco will be highlighting the intermediate-term benefits of weight loss surgery on memory and other mental abilities. And, finally, Dr. Gunstad will be giving two talks on our work showing the complex relationship between obesity and brain function. Hope to see you there!!!
