In this video ” This is your brain on sugar” by Amy. Amy is a neuroscientist who is fascinated by
how our brains regulate our behavior in our dynamic and evolving environment. Foods we eat,
such as junk food have an impact on our brains. When we eat junk food, dopamine is released.
Making us feel good and making us want more. But we also run the risk of getting dependent on
sugar. Her studies aim to understand the mechanisms through which our experiences in the
environment might influence how we react to situations and how the brain regulates our
behavior. Her research places a lot of emphasis on how, in addition to making us fatter. The
modern diet of soft drinks and junk food might alter our brains. These foods damage brain
regions important for memory formation and behavioral control. Which makes us desire to eat
more of them.

Research by Amy Reichelt on the results to our brain after the consumption of so much
junk food is a reminder on how important our diet really is. Our diet is such an important
factor we should take into consideration and be mindful of what we consume. Many of
us may think because we are not overweight, we don’t have to have a healthy diet and
we can consume plenty of junk food but in reality, most of the damage is being done
inside of our bodies and most importantly our brain. Learning that our prefrontal cortex
does not fully mature until we are in our 20s it is critical to start incorporating healthy
diets at an early age. I found it interesting to learn how an unhealthy diet affects our
hippocampus and eating junk food consistently cause inflammation in the memory center
of our brain. Knowing how this impairs the ability to learn and remember facts it is
important to take care of our health and stay away from so much junk food. After
watching this video and how Reichelt explained our brains cells and neurons malfunction
with the consistent consumption of an unhealthy diet has been an eye opener and realize
the importance of a healthy diet. With all the knowledge from this video I am going to
make sure to treat junk food as a reward and to keep staying away. I will be more mindful
of what I am consuming and incorporate more foods with omega 3 for the boost in
neurogenesis. The next time I do not want to push myself to the gym I will remember all
the information given regarding how being active boosts neuroplasticity mechanisms in
the brain.
