Variation in brain FA composition, particularly decreased DHA (22ŋ6n−3), affects neurodevelopment, altering visual, attentional, and cognitive functions, and is implicated in several neuropsychiatric disorders. To further understand how specific brain processes and systems are affected by variation in brain DHA content, we sought to determine whether specific brain regions were differentially affected by treatments that after brain DHA content. Adult male Long-Evans rats were raised from… CONTINUE READING
