The Impact of Nutrition, Helminth Infection, and Lifestyle on Elementary School Student’s Achievement
Helminth infection had a significant impact on elementary school students’ achievement, but no significant impact found for differences in nutritional state and lifestyle habit.
An Exploratory Analysis of the Relationship between Cardiometabolic Risk Factors and Cognitive/Academic Performance among Adolescents
The results indicate that systolic blood pressure is significantly, negatively associated with academic performance, both in male and female subjects.

DHA supplementation improved both memory and reaction time in healthy young adults: a randomized controlled trial.
DHA supplementation improved memory and the RT of memory in healthy, young adults whose habitual diets were low in DHA and APOE did not affect cognitive function, but there were some indications of APOE × sex × treatment interactions.
Physical fitness and academic performance in middle school students
The purpose of this study was to determine whether physical fitness is linked to academic success in middle school students and to investigate the link between physical fitness and grades.
Comparison of estimated energy intake from 2×24-hour recalls and a seven-day food record with objective measurements of energy expenditure in children
Misreporting of EI seemed modest with both the 2×24-HDRs and the 7-dFR in the 7–8 year-olds when compared to EE measured with ActiReg®, compared to measurements of EE.
Executive Functions Profile in Extreme Eating/Weight Conditions: From Anorexia Nervosa to Obesity
Findings suggest that EWC subjects (namely AN and OB) have similar dysfunctional executive profile that may play a role in the development and maintenance of such disorders.
Neuroimaging and obesity: current knowledge and future directions
The dynamic distributed vulnerability model of eating behaviour in obesity that is proposed has scientific and practical implications and sheds light on the interactive relationship between gut and brain.
Obesity in Preschoolers: Behavioral Correlates and Directions for Treatment
Given that obesity intervention research for preschoolers is in its infancy, and the multitude of modifiable behavioral correlates for obesity in this age group, an innovative and efficient research paradigm (Multiphase Optimization Strategy; MOST) is discussed to develop an optimized intervention that includes only treatment components that are found to empirically reduce obesity in preschoolers.
Processing Speed and Visuospatial Executive Function Predict Visual Working Memory Ability in Older Adults
Processing speed may affect VWM performance in older adults via speed of encoding and/or rate of rehearsal, while executive resources specifically associated with visuospatial material are also important.
Social factors in the development of early executive functioning: a closer look at the caregiving environment.
Child attachment security was related to conflict-EF performance at 3 years above and beyond what was explained by a combination of all other social antecedents of child EF identified thus far: child verbal ability and prior EF, family SES, and parenting behavior.
The Nature and Organization of Individual Differences in Executive Functions
It is argued that individual differences in EFs, as measured with simple laboratory tasks, show both unity and diversity and are related to various clinically and societally important phenomena, and show some developmental stability.
The effects of parental scaffolding on preschoolers' executive function.
The present study explores the effects of parental scaffolding of children's problem solving on the development of executive function (EF) and found scaffolding at age 3 was found to have a direct effect on EF at age 4 and an indirect effect through the child's verbal ability at age3.
