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.
