Eating | What's Happening in the Brain

Eating is a very basic and highly learned activity, so problems with eating are usually seen in later stages of Alzheimer's disease .

Apart from having the appetite to eat, eating requires the recognition of food which is disrupted in agnosia , and the coordination of motor activities, which is disrupted in apraxia .
