The world’s population is growing older. Consequently, much work is underway focusing on the development of strategies to maintain health with advancing age. Diet represents one such strategy. However, many questions still need to be answered, including regarding which dietary components or patterns confer the greatest benefit, and to which systems of the body, what level of consumption is required and for what timeframe, and whether such strategies can reduce risk of age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia.
This Special Issue on ‘Dietary Intake and the Aging Brain’ seeks to address some of these knowledge gaps by publishing selected papers detailing specific aspects of nutrition that could play a role in maintaining brain health with advancing age. Particularly, papers (reviews, clinical and experimental studies) that examine the role of specific nutrients in cognitive function and brain health, both directly and indirectly, and contributions describing the development and validation of a novel dietary assessment for use in studies of Alzheimer’s disease and ageing, will be included.
