In fairness to the researchers this is not the only study of its type - in fact there have been hundreds of studies that have examined the potential links between obesity and brain function. It's just that this is the most recently published one. Here's one from last year:
Obesity in middle age and future risk of dementia: a 27 year longitudinal population based study -- Whitmer et al., 10.1136/bmj.38446.466238.E0 -- BMJ
