    The effect of weight loss following 18 months of lifestyle intervention on brain age assessed with resting-state functional connectivity

    Gidon Levakov, Alon Kaplan ... Iris Shai
    Assessing predicted fMRI-based functional brain age before and after a lifestyle intervention suggests that weight loss, improved liver biomarkers, decreased liver fat, and visceral and deep subcutaneous adipose tissues correlate with attenuated brain aging.
