Anne Marie, it’s not that your prefrontal cortex is underdeveloped, it’s that the food cue activates the limbic system, and in doing so deactivates the pfc. Remember that only one or other of these areas in the brain is activated at any one time.

The same thing happens no matter what you’re addicted to: cocaine, alcohol, nicotine, sex, gambling…

The aim is to become aware of this happening at the time and then take steps to cope.
