Abstract

In the general population, obesity is associated with accelerated age-related cognitive decline. The impact of obesity on cognitive function in neurological populations who already have a heightened risk of cognitive decline is unknown. This study explored the relationship between obesity and cognitive underfunction in people with medically intractable epilepsy.
