Washington: A new study has found that eating highly- processed carbohydrates like cakes, cookies and chips could affect pleasure centers in the brain, leading to serious cravings that might cause people to overeat.Our brains consist of a complex network of pathways and regions that control for all our bodily functions. Chemical messengers called neurotransmitters allow signals to pass from one nerve cell to the next to aid in these functions.One neurotransmitter, dopamine, plays a major role in the brain`s reward pathways.For example, the brain gets flooded with dopamine when people take addictive drugs including cocaine and nicotine.To find out how food intake was regulated by the dopamine -reward pathway, Ludwig and his colleagues recruited 12 overweight or obese men between the ages of 18 and 35 years old, CBS News reported.
