The prevalence of childhood obesity in the United States has tripled since the 1980s and is strongly linked to the early onset of several metabolic diseases. Recent studies indicate that lower cognitive function may be another complication of childhood obesity. This review considers the research to date on the role of obesity and nutrition on childhood cognition and brain health. Although a handful of studies point to a maladaptive relationship between obesity and aspects of cognitive control… Expand
Diet, gut microbiota and cognition
TLDR
This review comprehensively summarizes the current evidence from mainly in vivo (rodent and human) studies of the relationship between diet, gut microbiota and cognition and discusses the possible mechanisms that the diet and the gut microbiota have on cognition. Expand
Visceral Adiposity and Diet Quality Are Differentially Associated With Cognitive Abilities and Early Academic Skills Among Preschool-Age Children
TLDR
Findings indicate that the negative impact of abdominal adiposity on academic skills is evident as early as preschool-age while providing preliminary support for the potentially beneficial role of diet quality on cognitive abilities in early childhood. Expand
Obesity and sex interact in the regulation of Alzheimer's disease
TLDR
The individual and cooperative effects of obesity and sex on development of AD are reviewed and the potential contributions of apolipoprotein E, inflammation, and their interactions to this relationship are examined. Expand
The Role of Thiamin in High Calorie Malnutrition
Objective: A number of disorders have become virtual epidemics in the modern era, including Attention Deficit (ADD), with or without hyperactivity, recurrent ear infections, Autistic SpectrumExpand
Relationship between weight status and cognition in children: A mediation analysis of physical fitness components
TLDR
The crucial role of fitness in minimising the negative effect of excess weight on children’s cognition is highlighted, as all fitness components acted as mediators of the relationship between BMI and general intelligence. Expand
Altering the Gut Microbiome for Cognitive Benefit
TLDR
This chapter serves to survey the existing literature and summarize how altering the microbiota via dietary manipulation and probiotic or prebiotic administration may be of cognitive benefit while also discussing potential mechanisms by which the gut microbiota communicates with the brain to potentially mediate these effects. Expand
Family Ecologies and Child Risk for Obesity: Focus on Regulatory Processes
TLDR
This article focuses on how proximal regulatory processes connect biological risk for obesity and family systems and makes recommendations for practice and policy to prevent childhood obesity and to empower families to take an active role in their community. Expand
Associations Between Aerobic Fitness and Cognitive Control in Adolescents
TLDR
Findings corroborate growing evidence indicating the importance of aerobic fitness for inhibitory control and cognitive flexibility and demonstrate effects in a large sample of adolescents with a computational model of the mechanisms that underlie cognition. Expand
A multi-method analysis of body mass index, physical activity, and executive functions among urban minority girls
Recent evidence suggests that the summer months represent an especially vulnerable time of year for weight gain, inactivity, and cognitive decline, particularly among adolescent girls. To exploreExpand
Longitudinal Associations Between Childhood Obesity and Academic Achievement: Systematic Review with Focus Group Data
TLDR
Interventions are warranted to promote psychosocial wellbeing and cognitive abilities linked to academic achievement in adolescent girls with obesity. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that childhood obesity is associated with a decreased ability to modulate the cognitive control network, involving the prefrontal cortex and anterior cingulate cortex, which supports action monitoring. Expand
