The omega-3 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 LCPUFA) comprise of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosapentaenoic acid (DPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). There are numerous studies on the physical health benefits of n-3 LCPUFA including cardiovascular health benefits but there are other emerging benefits.
Human behaviour is the potential and expressed capacity (mentally, physically, and socially) of human individuals or groups to respond to internal and external stimuli throughout their life. One potential external stimulus is n-3LCPUFA supplementation. For the current special issue we are looking for submissions dealing with the effect of n-3LCPUFA supplementation on any aspect of human behaviour or disorders of human behaviour. Examples include but are not limited to n-3LCPUFA supplementation trials in healthy people from all ages and/or in people with a disorder such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), poor impulse control, anxiety disorders, depression disorders, self-regulation disorders, psychosis, aggression, hostility and so on.
This Special Issue of Nutrients, entitled "Omega-3 Supplementation and Human Behaviour", welcomes the submissions of manuscripts which either include evidence-based original human clinical trial research or reviews of the scientific literature.
