PostSubject: Imprinted: Kids’ Brains “Branded” with Fast-Food Logos   Sat Feb 02, 2013 10:29 pm

If you think the millions that fast food restaurants spent on commercials don’t have a profound effect on our brains, you may be in for a surprise.

It turns out their logos are having a serious impact on the brain—in particular, the brains of children.

According to a study from the University of Missouri-Kansas City and the University of Kansas Medical Center, children’s brains are being branded early on in life—even before they know how to read.

While we can’t blame logos solely for the childhood obesity problem, there is little doubt that a the association a child’s brain makes with these logos could be having an effect on their relationship with food.

The study analyzed children’s brains when being shown food logos. The children, ages 10 to 14, were shown 120 logos—60 of them food-related and 60 of them non-food-related.
Using MRI technology, the researchers monitored their brains for activity. When shown food logos, the children’s brain activity was significantly increased compared to when they were shown non-food logos.

Specifically, the areas of the brain controlling rewards and appetite control “lit up” when shown the food logos, similarly to how they would if they were shown actual food.
