Q&A from the "What is Learning?" video series - Nutrition and Learning Development - Dr. Nora Schneider

During this podcast, Dr. Schneider will answer the following questions based on her talk Nutrition & Learning Development:

  • Why do different areas of the brain activate for children vs. adults when doing the same task?
  • When studying brain development in breast- vs. formula-fed infants, how can we account for the differences in demographics between the two groups?
  • Specific nutrients have been identified as important for early brain development, is it as simple as just giving more of these nutrients?
  • How much of brain development and learning is non-modifiable, such as the role of genetics?
