Obesity bariatric surgery patients usually lose more than 50% of their former obesity within a relatively short time (~ 2 years). There is still a lack of knowledge about underlying psychological and biological mechanisms of decline in body weight. The intention of this project is to investigate whether bariatric surgery is associated with patients' cognitive ability, lifestyle and/or gene expression and metabolomics.
