In March 2017, Wyeth Nutrition, in collaboration with the Nestlé Research Center (NRC) in Lausanne, began a nutritional intervention clinical trial in healthy babies to study the effect of myelin-relevant nutrients on cognitive development in the first 24 months of life. The information generated will help better understand how nutrition impacts myelination, brain and cognitive development.
