Book description

Everybody eats, and what we eat – or do not – affects the brain and mind. There is significant general, applied, academic, and industry interest about nutrition and the brain, yet there is much misinformation and no single reliable guide. Diet Impacts on Brain and Mind provides a comprehensive account of this emerging multi-disciplinary science, exploring the acute and chronic impacts of human diet on the brain and mind. It has a primarily human focus and is broad in scope, covering wide-ranging topics like brain development, whole diets, specific nutrients, research methodology, and food as a drug. It is written in an accessible format and is of interest to undergraduate and graduate students studying nutritional neuroscience and related disciplines, healthcare professionals with an applied interest, industry researchers seeking topic overviews, and interested general readers.


‘A scholarly and balanced overview of the literature and a treasure trove of information for those wanting to take a deep dive into diet and health.’

Dana Small - Yale University, USA

‘This book provides a highly detailed and authoritative look at the role of diet on mind and brain. While the focus is very much on human nutrition, the authors bring in relevant animal research when trying to understand mechanism.’

Charles Spence - University of Oxford, UK
