The Basics of Brain Development (NEW!)

This chapter is intended to provide an overview of some very basic principles of brain development, drawn from contemporary developmental neurobiology.

Synergistic Effects Of Human Milk Nutrients In The Support Of Infant Recognition Memory: An Observational Study (NEW!)

Studied relation of human milk lutein, choline and DHA with recognition memory. Nutrients Interactions appear important to predict infant cognition.

Food Consumption Patterns of Infants and Toddlers: Where Are We Now? (NEW!)

The data from FITS 2008 was compared to the data from 2002 and improvements and gaps in the diet of infants and toddlers were identified.

A DTI-Based Template-Free Cortical Connectome Study of Brain Maturation

A template-free ‘‘baby connectome’’ study mapping brain networks in premature neonates, term-born neonates, six-month-old infants, and adults.

A Machine Learning Approach To Automated Structural Network Analysis: Application To Neonatal Encephalopathy

Reported the methodology of standard machine learning algorithms which offers a novel tool to evaluate neonates at risk of neurological deficit.

Implementation Of Nutritional Strategies Decreases Postnatal Growth Restriction In Preterm Infants

Study reported optimized and individualized nutritional intervention promotes postnatal growth of preterm infants without any effect on % fat mass.

The Role Of Nutrition In Children’s Neurocognitive Development, From Pregnancy Through Childhood

Discussed possible associations of individual nutrient intakes and more recently dietary patterns to neurocognitive development in childhood.

Nutrient intakes of children aged 1–2 years as a function of milk consumption, cows’ milk or growing-up milk

The study reported the cow milk consumption increased risk of nutrient insufficiency of Fe, vitamin D and etc and growing-up milk reduced such risk.

The Role Of Infant Nutrition In The Prevention Of Future Disease

Reviewed the evidence of early nutritional intervention and future disease prevention including allergic, immunologic, and cardiovascular diseases.
