Brain Skills® promotes neuronal migration and development in cultivated human brain tissue

Abstract:
The evolution of large human brain size has had important implications for the nutritional biology of our species. The question of whether brain func­tion is entirely genetically determined or may be influenced by the environment or by nutrition has been debated for decades. Large brains are energe­tically expensive, and humans expend a larger pro­portion of their energy budget on brain metabolism than other primates. Military interest in the effects of nutritional factors on brain function has stimula­ted considerable research on a variety of food cons­tituents. In this perspective, Brain Skills®, which consists of an association of amino acids, vitamins, minerals, precursors of neurotransmitters and an­tioxidants, was tested in human neuron cultures. Brain Skills® promoted greater migratory and neu­roplastic effects after 72 hours of treatment.
