My family history is lousy with depression, Alzheimer’s genes (ApoE4) and expression, diabetes, high cholesterol, general health issues related to inflammation and crabbiness. The older I get (and the older my parents get), the more I feel I have reason to pay a lot more attention to this.
I’ve been collecting links on brain-related research for a while now, and I stepped it up a lot in the last year. I also started cooking more, and pretty soon food and brain research felt more and more related. So I’ll post a mix of recipes with brain-healthy ingredients and brain-related research here, and cross-post most or all my links to twitter at @brainfeeding.
My sources: Prismatic, Google alerts for various brain science research results, twitter feeds I follow, and general recipe scavenging/modifying/creating.
If you want to follow the raw firehose of brain-related research, I save it on my delicious tag “brain”: http://www.delicious.com/arnicas/brain
