Module 1: Intro to Nutritional Psychiatry

What You'll Learn in this Module

This module will provide you with the foundational knowledge of nutritional psychiatry, a rapidly growing field that explores how what you eat directly affects the structure and function of your brain – and ultimately, your mood, cognition, and behaviors. You will learn key chemicals and structures in the brain, and discover how both unhealthy and healthy foods affect each of these. You will also get a fascinating look at the gut-brain axis, and learn about the connections between not only what you eat, how you feel, and how you ultimately behave, but the many types of bacteria that live in your gut.
