One of the aims of this website is to plug a gap in general medical knowledge. While pharmaceutical science is taught in depth to medical students, nutrition tends to be side-lined or missed out entirely.
Our repository of research paper abstracts – all cross referenced and linked where appropriate to relevant news stories – enables practitioners to gain immediate access to the latest studies and conclusions relating to food and its links to brain health and behaviour. It is an organic, growing database supplying a unique service to health professionals interested in the possibilities and precedence of nutritional interventions.
We also include links to relevant literature and resources; while Associate Members are able to access exclusive video presentations from some of the leading researchers in the field.
These are just some of the themes in research abstracts added to the site recently:
The brain in relation to avocado consumption, brain atrophy in ageing, and ketogenic diets and memory.
Alcohol, in the context of gender differences in alcohol-related alterations in cortical activity, and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder among children and youth.
Obesity in relation to neural correlates of familial obesity risk and overweight in adolescence, and early pregnancy weight gain and birth weight.
