Objective: Obesity may cause cognitive dysfunctions such as attention, processing speed, memory, and executive functioning. However, little is known about how obesity can affect cognitive functions in obese individuals. Sensory gating shows the early pre-attention period in information processing and is accepted to be the result of the integration of multi-step procedures that can be tested with the double click P50 paradigm. The aim of this study is to investigate changes in cognitive functions with sensory gating in obese individuals.
