Perinatal Brain Docosahexaenoic Acid Concentration Has a Lasting Impact on Cognition in Mice.

Abstract

Background: Premature infants are deprived of prenatal accumulation of brain docosahexaenoic acid [DHA (22:6n-3)], an omega-3 fatty acid [ω-3 FA (n-3 FA)] important for proper development of cognitive function.
