In this key lecture, Professor Carel Le Roux addresses the following question: "How the gut talks to the brain". Prof. Carel le Roux, an internist specialized in metabolic medicine and chair of experimental pathology at the University College in Dublin (Ireland) presents a challenging view of obesity through a brilliant description of the complex connections between the digestive tract and the central nervous system and how these connections might be modified by bariatric surgery in order to control the desire to eat and the perception of satiety.
