Food for Thought: Connections Between Nutrition and Brain Health

There is growing research evidence that what you eat can affect your mental health, including your mood and cognition. The evidence supporting nutrition’s role in brain health will be discussed in our next Science in the Parks program.

Specifically, Dr. Tussing-Humphreys will focus on discussing research tying a Western-type diet pattern to mental health disorders such as depression and dementia. She will also review how a plant-based diet like the Mediterranean diet can be beneficial to mood and cognitive health.
