In a new study, researchers from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical center showed that eating walnuts activated an area in the brain associated with regulating hunger and cravings.

Dr. Christos Mantzoros, M.D., D.Sc., Ph.D., director of the Human Nutrition Unit at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, says: “From a strategic point of view, we now have a good tool to look into people's brains—and we have a biological readout. We plan to use it to understand why people respond differently to food in the environment and, ultimately, to develop new medications to make it easier for people to keep their weight down.”
