London: Mind your food! `Brain training` may help you fight the urge to snack, scientists say. Researchers believe that `brain training` exercises by handheld computer games could dramatically improve your health, adding that snack consumption and weight are linked to both brain activity and self-control. The team from the universities of Exeter, Cardiff, Bristol and Bangor discovered that an individual`s brain "reward centre" response has more of an effect on the amount they ate than their feelings of hunger, the `Daily Mail` reported. According to experts, the study "adds to mounting evidence that over-eating and increased weight are linked, in part, to a region of the brain associated with motivation and reward." Academics at Exeter and Cardiff have already begun testing `brain training` techniques to reduce the lure of food on individuals with low levels of self-control. Similar tests are used to assist those with gambling or alcohol addiction. "Our study has important implications for our understanding of how people become obese and how they might also lose weight, issues that are really important to health." Dr John Parkinson, senior lecturer at Bangor University said.
