Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

There is mounting evidence suggesting that various aspects of our lifestyle, including nutrition and dietary choices, can significantly impact brain health. For example, factors modulating the serum uric acid level may affect brain health and induce other chronic diseases. These lifestyle factors have the potential to influence cognitive functions, depression, anxiety, memory, and learning. Furthermore, they can play a pivotal role in modulating the risk and progression of neurological and psychiatric disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease and depression. In addition, they can risk factors for neurological disorders such as migraine. For example, migraine is associated with dietary triggers including caffeine, alcohol, aged cheeses, processed meats, monosodium glutamate, artificial seeteners, or salty foods, etc. Furthermore, the migraine is also associated with a wide range of comorbidities. Consequently, it has become increasingly important to deepen our understanding of how specific dietary and lifestyle modifications affect both the overall brain health and neurological conditions. Our overarching goal is to explore the intricate connection between these lifestyle elements and brain health, offering evidence-based recommendations at multiple levels, spanning from epidemiological and clinical research to translational studies. By doing so, we aim to shed light on their roles in promoting brain health and unravel the underlying mechanisms that link them to chronic diseases.

We warmly invite a diverse range of submissions for this Special Issue, encompassing original research articles, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses.

Dr. Mi-jung Kwon
Guest Editor
