Abstract

Behind the headlines linking nutrition and IQ lie fascinating questions for psychologists and nutritionists to tackle: what is the real evidence for the link between cognition and nutrition? What can it tell us about the way that nutrients and the brain interact, and how does this affect our mental health?

The first book of its kind, Nutrition and Mental Performance takes a unique lifespan perspective, providing an absorbing account of this thriving area of psychology. It unpicks the evidence and covers topical themes including the impact of energy drinks and herbal extracts on health.

With insightful contributions from a collection of internationally renowned academics and professionals, this will be the keystone text for students of psychology and nutrition studies at all levels.
