HMOs and Cognition - Dr. Jonas Hauser
Dr Jonas Hauser on the fascinating world of human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) and their potential role in cognition. HMOs are bioactive components in human milk that have little or no nutritive value but are known to support the developing microbiota. Dr Hauser will discuss the structure and composition of HMOs and how this relates to their functions.
In particular, learn:
- How one of the most abundant HMOs, 2’FL, is associated with cognitive development
- How one of the ‘sialylated’ HMOs is associated with cognition and language in infants
