There's Hope For Me Yet

According to this article in the Times, there seems to be some connection, within the brain, between appetite and memory.

In an attempt to suppress a man's hunger, doctors inserted electrodes into his hypothalamus, which is implicated in appetite regulation. To their astonishment, this caused him to recall events from thirty years ago, in sharp detail.

So, it looks like there may one day be a single treatment that can sort out both my rotundity and my appalling memory, simultaneously. I live in hope!
