Brain Development: Relationship to Dietary Lipid and Lipid Metabolism
The American Oil Chemists Society, Aug 30, 1995 - Medical - 119 pages
This book's objective is to provide a focused overview (morphological, biochemical, and functional) of brain development, to exemplify the role of lipids in the important developmental events, and to develop the concepts explaining why physiological changes in brain lipid composition potentially alter these events.
