The scientists discovered a correlation between food addiction and greater activity in the amygdala, medial orbitofrontal cortex and the anterior cingulated cortex when tasty food delivery was known to arrive soon.

Those with high food addiction, the fifteen women, showed greater activity in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex compared to those with low addiction to foods.
