Program Description Example:
Nutrition and Physical Activity: Impacts on Cognitive Function Across the Lifespan
The role of nutrition in the development of the brain in early life as well as its impact on cognitive functions, mental performance and behavior throughout life is a hot topic in nutrition research. This program will review approaches to improve cognitive development in early life and prevent cognitive decline in later life. Emerging data will be presented demonstrating how dietary components and physical activity impact various cognitive outcomes, such as learning, memory, executive function and academic achievement. Novel imaging modalities for assessing brain structure and function, including fMRI, will be discussed, and opportunities to assess the combined impact of diet and physical activity on cognitive functions will be highlighted.
