"You Are What You Eat" - Fernando Gomez-Pinilla
Join us for "You Are What You Eat: The Action of Food and Exercise on the Brain" by Professor Fernando Gomez-Pinilla, PhD.
Diet and exercise usually are associated with bodily systems below the neck, but research in Dr. Gomez-Pinilla's NeuroLife Lab at UCLA reveals that thse lifestyle factors potently modify mental health and cognition. Dr. Gomez-Pinilla will discuss how diet and exercise might be harnessed to prevent or treat neurological, psychiatric, and psychological disorders.
