Early-life Nutrition for the Brainy Child
Myelination and maturation of white matter are keys to learning and facilitate fast and efficient information processing that underpins how we think, feel, and act.
The Learning Lead - Volume 5, Issue 1 2018 - Early Life Nutrition May Influence Developmental Myelination and Cognition
Previous studies have shown both the differences in myelination between exclusively breastfed and exclusively formula-fed infants. This milestone publication also looks at how the varying nutritional composition of different formulas may impact not only myelination but also differences in cognitive outcomes. It discusses using state-of-the-art neuroimaging techniques to examine longitudinal trajectories of myelination and measurements of cognition and assessing the role played by nutritional composition on these outcomes.
