PSYC 6746 - Behavioral Nutrition♦


(5 cr.) Providing patients with positive support and information about nutritional choices can often alleviate symptoms of disease as well as mitigate the need for further therapeutic or medicinal treatment. Students in this course explore the interaction between behavior and nutrition. They examine the fundamental principles of human digestion and nutrient metabolism, specific nutrient requirements of the brain and brain metabolism of nutrients, and effects of nutrients on brain function. Applying these principles, students critically examine and discuss current trends in behavioral nutrition and conduct nutritional assessments. (Prerequisite(s): PSYC 6225.)
