Dietary modulation of cortical excitation and inhibition
Smith, Anika Kathryn; Wade, Alexander Robert Patrick; Penkman, Kirsty Elizabeth Helena; Baker, Daniel Hart;
The balance of excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters in the brain affects both neural responses and behaviour in humans and animals. Here we investigated whether dietary intervention aimed at increasing levels of the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA can influence ... View more
