Our Brain Lights Up When We See Food

The best part about Halloween is all the candies and the good food. In the context of Halloween & food, a new study has found that a special part of our brain lights up when we see food.

This section, known as the "ventral food component," is located in the visual cortex of the brain, which is a region associated with the recognition of faces, objects, and words.

The Intruding System

The work entailed creating a computer model of the visual cortex area of the brain using artificial intelligence (AI) technologies.

The model was introduced to 1.2 million new food images. In turn, the model showered the team with plenty of responses. 

Our Brain’s Response

The response was rather exciting. It didn't matter what color the food images were for the AI model. Even black and white images still caused the reaction, albeit less powerfully. Additionally, the model was able to distinguish between food and things that resembled food. 

The researchers discovered from the human data that certain people reacted slightly differently to processed foods like pizza and unprocessed foods like apples.



  • The goal of The PAN Foundation is to use a donation system to offer affordable financial aid to people with chronic and uncommon diseases who are uninsured.
  • RxAssist offers their knowledge about patient assistance programs while also inclining toward the pharmaceutical needs of people by giving them free medication.
  • Don’t fall into the pit holes of insurance claims this fall, go to OONOLOGY to file your out-of-network claim at easy and cheap rates.



  • Almonds maintain gut health: Almonds in the diet may be a strategy to increase fiber consumption without causing stomach problems and maintain overall gut health.
  • Electric cigarettes: An additional blow against electronic cigarettes is the discovery in recent mouse research that they can result in cardiac arrhythmias or abnormal heartbeats.
  • Cats Or Dogs: According to the study, students who display one of the Big Five emotionality traits are more interested in cat visits.
  • Shingles & stroke: Exosomes, lipid vesicles that transport proteins and genetic information between cells, are thought to hold the key to explaining why people who have had shingles have a higher risk of stroke, according to new research.
