The role of inflammation and endoplasmic reticulum stress in obesity-related cognitive impairment
The epidemiological investigations and animal model experiments have confirmed the impact of obesity on the brain, behavior, and cognition. However, the mechanism by which obesity affects cognitive function is not fully understood. With the development of an aging society, there is an increase in the economic and social burden caused by the decline in cognitive function. This manuscript reviews the effects of inflammation and endoplasmic reticulum stress (ERS) on the hypothalamus, hippocampus, and the possible impact on cognitive impairment. These findings provide new insights into the pathophysiological mechanisms that lead to the development of cognitive impairment in the context of obesity.
