Infant Nutrition and Brain Development

Brief description of study

Research study on the role of early life nutrition on brain and cognitive development during infancy and early childhood. Two blends of myelin-relevant nutrients at different levels will be compared and a breastfed group will be considered as epidemiological reference.

Detailed Study Description

This nutritional intervention study involves assessments in both the mother and her infant. The mother will be asked to complete self-report questionnaires and to undergo a brief cognitive assessment. If the mother is not breastfeeding, a study product will be provided and will be consumed by the infant daily up to 12 months of life. The study also involves magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) brain scans of the infant's brain while asleep as well as evaluations of general cognitive and social-emotional development.
