Role of nutrients in brain structure and function
The brain requires a large proportion of our total nutrient and energy intake for metabolism. Essential nutrients allow the brain to function day-to-day, as well as to develop and repair itself. This influences our mood and behavior, and therefore also our cognitive ability and mental performance.
“It is clear that research into brain development, health and disease is needed to understand the challenges faced by patients with neurological conditions. The work we do is both complex and rewarding. We are only just beginning to unravel the complexities of the brain.”
