oh by the way did anyone else go trawling throught the other articles? This one personally got my attention because i've not ever experienced hunger pangs and i've always been small, i wonder if this could be why...

"Scottish scientists say they've determined the hormone that controls the body's hunger pangs may also boost one's memory.

The Dundee University researchers told the BBC they have found a link between the hormone leptin and the brain's memory and learning process. Leptin controls food intake and body weight and staves off the urge to eat.

One of the researchers, Jenni Harvey, told the BBC: "The hormone leptin, which is known to control food intake and body weight, has been shown to exert a profound influence on learning and memory processes in a region of the brain called the hippocampus.........."

Memory was a strong point in my favour though now i've got holes those memories are starting to fall through lol

Cheers again.........JJ

I was thinking it was like reading the back jacket of a book, it got me interested but didn't tell me enough. I too think we'll probably be hearing more about this.
