Description

As part of the Nutrishield EU project, the Life Science Trace Detection Laboratory is organizing a webinar entitled “Nutrition and cognitive development in children” on the 4th of October 2022.

The food we eat can influence our brain functioning, and perhaps even more, the development of the child brain. The way nutrition might affect the brain is by influencing the microbes in the gut and the immune system. In return, the gut microbes respond by producing specific metabolites. Some of them can be found in breath, as they are carried by blood into the lungs and exhaled. Bacteria rapidly colonize the infant gut after birth. These bacteria become part of a relatively stable ecosystem that has an important role in child health and growth. There is increasing evidence that these bacteria also impact the child's brain, hence affecting child behavior and cognition.
