This study was to examine the correlation between the brain function of adult suffering from obesity and the level of their obesity based on brainwave measurements. Based on the result of Body Composition Analysis (BCA) examination, population of 651 overweight pupils was chosen from June 2011 to December of 2012 in S city, I hospital. These patients were measured by timeseries linear analysis for their brain function and observed via brainwave activities. The results have been thus far; first, as their BMI (Body Mass Index) and level of obesity (body fat percentage) were higher, degree of mental stress and resistant to stress marked lower. These results prove that by managing the stress resistant ability and attention ability, self-controlling ability, one can expect a positive effect on finding a methods to ease the obese-related problems.
