Dr. Clémentine Bosch-Bouju is a neuroscientist expert in the impact of nutrition on neurophysiology. She did her PhD in the Collège De France, Paris, and her postdoc at the University of Otago, New Zealand, on the physiopathology of Parkinson’s disease, with electrophysiology and optogenetics approaches. She joined the NutriNeuro lab in 2014 where she specialized in the impact of nutrition on brain function. Her work shows the deleterious impact of an omega-3-deficient diet on endocannabinoid-dependent synaptic plasticity. Since 2016, Dr. Bosch-Bouju has been an assistant professor at Bordeaux INP and she is studying the role of vitamin A metabolism in the pathophysiology of Parkinson’s disease.

Nutrition is an environmental factor modulating physiology throughout life and especially brain function. Nutrients in the brain can either fuel brain cells, contribute to tissue architecture, or initiate signaling pathways through their derivatives. Nutrients ultimately participate in brain development, cognitive and emotional behaviors, and can influence the susceptibility to develop brain pathologies. This book is a selection of current research on the impact of diet on brain function. Chapters include the role of lipids and glucose on the brain, nutrition and autophagy, and consequences of enteral feeding on brain-gut interactions. Taken together, this book targets all scientists, clinicians, teachers, and students eager to learn more about the impact of nutrition on brain function.
