The Nutrition and Mental Performance Task Force latest review: amongst the most downloaded articles from Ageing Research Reviews

The latest reviews published from ILSI Europe’s Nutrition and Mental performance Task Force (TF) are amongst the most downloaded of the Ageing Brain Reviews in the last 90 days. Both publications together comprise 40 exports and saves and more than 3,000 readers.

Both reviews are the result of the 1st and 2nd events on ‘Nutrition for the Ageing Brain’. The Task Force’s latest outputs have been presented at this year’s 13th European Nutrition Conference (FENS). The TF session titled “From early-life events to the ageing brain: Impact of nutrition on health determinants” was one of the most attended sessions at FENS.

The Task Force is now organising the 4th Symposium on ‘Nutrition for the Ageing Brain: From Mechanism to sustainability’ that will be held on 25th-26th June 2020 in Lisbon, Portugal. The poster abstract submission and the registration are now open.
