Neuroscientists at the Institute of Psychiatry in London have found that a spoonful of this amazingly  delicious treat, lights up the same pleasure centre in the brain as  listening to your favourite music or winning money

The scientists scanned the brains of people eating ice cream and found an immediate effect on parts of the brain known to activate when people enjoy themselves. It lights up the happy zones of the brain in clinical trials. These include the orbitofrontal cortex, the “processing” area at the front of the brain.

The scientists used a functional magnetic resonance imaging machine to watch blood flowing to activated brain areas when people swallowed ice cream.
