The CNP Diet and Cognition Research Category consolidates research exploring the interdependent relationship between dietary intake and child and adolescent cognition. Within Nutritional Psychology, we refer to cognition as the mental processes associated with attention, perception, thinking, learning, memory, and other higher-order processes. To view each original study on the open internet, click “Original.” To view the CNP summary of the study, click “CNP Summary.” While a small portion of the studies in this research category is available below for free, the full set of studies (and their summaries) are available to CNP members through the CNP Library Membership (launching January 15, 2022).
