According to researchers, the memory of children is also weakened by obesity. They may also face difficulty in thinking and planning. Data from 10,000 teenagers were collected for study by researchers from the University of Vermont and Yale University of America. During the 10-year-long study, they were examined every two years and blood samples were taken. During this time, his brain was also scanned. Scientists found that children whose body mass index (BMI) is high, their cerebral cortex becomes thin. The cerebral cortex is a layer that covers the outer part of the brain. The thinning of the cortex affects the brain’s abilities to think, remember and plan by understanding situations.

A new ray of hope has been shown in the direction of treatment of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a disease associated with increasing eyesight with increasing age. Scientists have reported that there are some light receptors in the retina that absorb light. Then working on that information, the message is sent to the brain. Recent research has found that our brain easily understands the difference between natural and artificial visualization while working on information. This can open the way for effective treatment of AMD with the help of artificial retina.The macula, the central part of retina, works on most information reaching from the eye to the brain. Various activities like watching, reading and facial recognition are possible through this. Macular dysfunction with aging leads to AMD problems.
