Functional and Structural Benefits Induced by Omega-3 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids During Aging

Abstract

BACKGROUND Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFA) are structural components of the brain and are indispensable for neuronal membrane synthesis. Along with decline in cognition, decreased synaptic density and neuronal loss, normal aging is accompanied by a reduction in n-3 PUFA concentration in the brain in both humans and rodents. Recently, many… (More)
