Brain scans showed more activity during the encoding process (when memories are formed) and less activity during memory retrieval, suggesting greater recall efficiency. "The altered brain activity after weight loss suggests that the brain becomes more active while storing new memories and therefore needs lesser brain energy to recollect stored information," said the research leader Andreas Pettersson, MD, in a press release.
