Edited by Tahira Farooqui and Akhlaq A. Farooqui
Psychologists, psychiatrists, biochemists, and other clinicians and researchers from around the world provide 28 chapters on the role of diet and exercise in cognitive function and age-related neurological diseases. They discuss the effects of various diets on metabolic changes in visceral organs and the brain, focusing on the Western diet, Mediterranean diet, ketogenic diets, n-3 fatty acids, homocysteine levels, polyphenols, and table salt; the effects of diet and exercise on major depression, diabetic retinopathy, age-induced impairments, cognitive function, dementia, Alzheimer's disease, neural plasticity, the aging brain, neuronal survival, anxiety disorders, neurodegenerative diseases, and neuroplasticity and growth factors in adolescence; and the role of sleep and its interaction with exercise.
