Specific nutrients appear to modify the metabolism of neurotransmitters, which are endogenous regulators of neurogenesis, neural migration, and synaptogenesis during both embryonic and early postnatal life. This has led to the question of whether, by affecting neurotransmission, malnutrition during the early neonatal period affects behavioral development. The literature based on animal models suggests that nutrient deficiencies during early life influence neurotransmission and, in some… CONTINUE READING
