The association between obesity and mental rotation ability in an adolescent sample

Kaltner, Sandra ; Schulz, Anja ; Jansen, Petra



Abstract

Obesity has been related to deficient mental rotation performance. We assessed object-based and egocentric MR tasks in 19 obese and 19 normal-weight participants. Results showed slower response times of obese adolescents only for high angular disparities. This finding might emerge because of impairments in working memory, motor skills or perspective taking processes in obese youth. (C) 2016 Asia Oceania Association for the Study of Obesity.
