According to ScienceDaily, the study compared how 51 women performed on a test of their attention after they ate either a meal high in saturated fat or the same meal made with sunflower oil, which is high in unsaturated fat.

Their performance on the test was worse after eating the high-saturated-fat meal than after they ate the meal containing a healthier fat, signaling a link between that fatty food and the brain.

"Most prior work looking at the causative effect of the diet has looked over a period of time. And this was just one meal -- it's pretty remarkable that we saw a difference," said Annelise Madison, lead author of the study and a graduate student in clinical psychology at The Ohio State University.

Eating food that is high in salt, fats and added sugars could harm your cognitive abilities. That’s one of the headline findings from a research experiment that monitored the harm done by a diet high in saturated fats, salt, and sucrose – referred to as the Western-style diet.

The research team, based at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia, recruited 110 students aged 17-35 and split them into two groups – a control group and one that would go through the experiment. They were all fit and healthy, with a body mass index (BMI) between 17 and 26.

The control group eats healthy meals when the other has a high-fat and high-sugar diet. The findings showed people in the Western-style diet group were more likely to suffer from “impairments in hippocampal function which is an important part of the brain which helps control short-term and long-term memories.

In a book named "How Not To Diet: The Groundbreaking Science of Healthy, Permanent Weight Loss" by Michael Greger MD, an Australian researcher conducted a study on men and women to eat either breakfast high in saturated fat and added sugar or a healthier breakfast for four consecutive days. After that, they are asked to remember a list of twelve words and the results showed that the healthy breakfast group can remember 90 percent of the words, whereas the fatty breakfast group is just able to remember 75 percent of the list.

The fatty breakfast group also appeared to suffer a hit to their ability to perceive internal body states. This showed that saturated fat has negative impacts on our brains.
