Man met eten als brein

'Smarter because of fish'; 'People who eat a lot of chocolate are less likely to be depressed'; all kinds of things are written about the relationship between nutrition and the brain. But what is true? How does nutrition influence the functioning of your brain?

Inge van der Wurff is an associate professor in the Department of Conditions for Lifelong Learning at the Open University. In this lecture she debunks popular nutrition myths and explains how the relationship between nutrition, cognition, mental well-being and study performance works. She will also give tips on what is or is not brain-friendly food.
