Chocolate Cake and the Too-Busy Brain

Today I learned, from RadioLab via Andy, that it you are busy thinking too hard (like remembering 7 items instead of 2), it’s hard to choose fruit salad over chocolate cake.  Well that explains so much!  It’s about the same part of the brain trying to keep things straight.

Here, listen for yourself.  It may just make more sense if you hear the whole story.
