Unscramble the Blue Letters

So what happens if the big brain in the iaoetrtgnin overrides the signal? So if you oirdvree the hunger signal, you can have a disorder, which is called aoirnexa. Despite generating a healthy hunger signal, the big brain ignores it and aacvittes different programs in the gut. The more usual case is orvanieteg. It actually takes the signal and changes it, and we continue, even [though] our eight signals would say, "Stop, enough. We have transferred enough egreny." Now the interesting thing is that, along this lower layer — this gut — the signal becomes stronger and stronger if utdnegsied, but digestible, material could penetrate. This we found from bariatric surgery. That then the signal would be very, very high.

So what happens if the big brain in the ___________ overrides the signal? So if you ________ the hunger signal, you can have a disorder, which is called ________. Despite generating a healthy hunger signal, the big brain ignores it and _________ different programs in the gut. The more usual case is __________. It actually takes the signal and changes it, and we continue, even [though] our eight signals would say, "Stop, enough. We have transferred enough ______." Now the interesting thing is that, along this lower layer — this gut — the signal becomes stronger and stronger if __________, but digestible, material could penetrate. This we found from bariatric surgery. That then the signal would be very, very high.

Original Text

So what happens if the big brain in the integration overrides the signal? So if you override the hunger signal, you can have a disorder, which is called anorexia. Despite generating a healthy hunger signal, the big brain ignores it and activates different programs in the gut. The more usual case is overeating. It actually takes the signal and changes it, and we continue, even [though] our eight signals would say, "Stop, enough. We have transferred enough energy." Now the interesting thing is that, along this lower layer — this gut — the signal becomes stronger and stronger if undigested, but digestible, material could penetrate. This we found from bariatric surgery. That then the signal would be very, very high.
