Can good food help your memory? Will a healthy diet protect against dementia? What should you eat to promote brain health? This presentation identifies the nutrients and dietary components that are unhealthy for the aging brain and outlines a diet that may be protective against the development of dementia.
Martha Clare Morris is a professor of epidemiology and director of the Section of Internal Medicine and assistant provost of community research at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. Her research focuses on community populations, their diets and eating behaviors and how their dietary practices relate to changes in their cognitive abilities over time. The lecture was presented in the UC Davis Medical Education Building.
