Special Issue "Nutrients for Cardiometabolic Health and Brain Function"
A special issue of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2018)
Nutrients is planning a Special Issue focusing on the impact of nutrition on cardiometabolic health and brain function. Cardiovascular and metabolic disease contribute substantially to the burden of chronic disease across the developed world. In addition, as the populations of the most developed countries age, there is an increasing prevalence of age-related cognitive decline, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Many of the risk factors for cardiovascular disease, metabolic disease and dementia/Alzheimer’s disease are interrelated and can be positively influenced by nutrition. The interrelation of risk factors is in part due to effects on the cerebrovasculature impacting on brain function, but nutrients can also elicit direct effects on neurons.
This Special Issue aims to bring together up-to-date reviews and cutting-edge original research in the field of nutritional effects on cardiometabolic health and brain function, and their interactions. We welcome manuscripts on long-term, short-term and acute human studies, as well as epidemiological research on a wide range of outcomes associated with the impacts of nutrition on cardiometabolic health and brain function. We also invite submissions of systematic reviews and meta-analyses.
We invite you to submit your latest research to this Special Issue.Prof. Dr. Jonathan Buckley
