Background
Ryan Carvalho, MD - The Fats of life in early childhood brain development
Abstract

Today’s lecture will describe an overview of brain development and physiological processes, such as structural and functional connectivity. We will then discuss the importance of nutrition and focus on some of the nutrients that have been shown to play a role during critical and sensitive periods of brain development. Finally, we will summarize the evidence that links structural neurodevelopment to functional outcomes like cognition and learning.
