Homeostasis of the body weight is maintaining by the interactions between the different sections of the brain and peripheral tissues. Diffusion weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWI) is a method that investigates the microscopic motion of the water particules in tissues and also depends on measurement of the signal variations in tissues which is connected with the kinetic energy of the molecules called; molecular diffusion. The purpose of this work was to detect brain diffu...
