Information For Medical/Academic Researchers

Our unique database of research covers more than two decades of studies into the links between nutrition and behaviour, offering a window on current and historical research in your specific area of interest.

Searchable by topic or author, you can find research abstracts (linking to the original research) linked to both corresponding news articles, and related research papers.

We also include links to relevant books and other resources; so this website provides a cross-referenced database of work, illustrating how food, diet and nutrition affect brain development and function, and therefore mood, behaviour and learning.
