Eating fat grows the brain to want more fat

This study from Nature Neuroscience uses mice to study the effects of fat consumption on the brain.  Mice who ate a high fat diet grew new four times as many cells in the hypothalamus, an area of the brain which regulates appetite.  This suggests some kind of cycle where eating more fat makes you want to eat more fat.
