Overview

If you search the word 'diet' online, you'll receive around 500 million results; if you search the word 'fat' you'll receive a shocking 700 million. But with this apparent wealth of information, how much do we really know about obesity?

Dr. John Menzies is a lecturer in the Centre for Integrative Physiology at the University of Edinburgh who specializes in the neurobiology of appetite and reward. In this course offered through Coursera, the instructor discusses the latest research on obesity with a range of experts. Rather than offering diet or exercise advice, Understanding Obesity focuses on the science behind obesity, including both its causes and consequences.

Gareth Leng, professor of experimental physiology
