Since little research, in Iran, has been carried out into the relationship between implicit and explicit memories and linguistic issues, the present research seeks to study the information-processing trend with regard to the vocabulary related to food, body style, and body organs in ordinary and obese female subjects. To achieve such a goal, ten women suffering from severe obesity, ten obese, and ten normal women were studied using implicit/explicit memory tasks. In memory tasks, the vocabulary related to food, body style, and body organs was used. The results showed bias in regards to the implicit memory. The subjects with severe obesity were more successful in completing word stems related to food. The obese women performed better on the vocabulary related to food and body style. Showing the same bias to different types of words, the normal group displayed no special tendency. The explicit memory task revealed no bias in any certain group.
