Video of the week: Wendy Brown talks about obesity and addiction

Professor Wendy Brown is one of a number of Monash researchers featured in a documentary produced by the Monash Lens team and published this week, on the science of addiction. She says that addiction centres in your brain sit very close to your appetite centres, so there is a real cross-over between addiction and this disease state [of obesity]. "Once you've gained weight, only about 3% of people can lose a substantial amount of weight and keep it off".
