Neuroimaging reveals lasting brain deficits in iron-deficient piglets

EurekAlert! Biology - Tue, 2018-02-20 21:00
(University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) Iron deficiency in the first four weeks of a piglet's life - equivalent to roughly four months in a human infant - impairs the development of key brain structures, scientists report. The abnormalities remain even after weeks of iron supplementation begun later in life, the researchers found.

Study offers more food for thought on kids' eating habits, emotions

EurekAlert! Biology - Tue, 2018-02-20 21:00
(University of Texas at Dallas) A University of Texas at Dallas psychologist has examined the preconceptions about the effects of emotions on children's eating habits, creating the framework for future studies of how dietary patterns evolve in early childhood. Dr. Shayla C. Holub, associate professor in the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences, demonstrated that children from 4½ to 9 years old chose chocolate candy over goldfish crackers more frequently in response to both happiness and sadness.
