Abstract

HASHIMOTO, Japan outlines the relevance of cognitive function and omega-3 fatty acids, especially docosahexaenoic acid, and the possibility of preventive effect of the fatty acid on dementia.

Background

Docosahexaenoic acid, the most abundant omega-3 fatty acid in the brain, plays a role in cognitive development, learning ability, neuronal membrane plasticity, synaptogenesis, and neurogenesis, all of which are involved in synaptic transmission and the well-being of normal brain functions, and search on the functionality is still in progress.

Methodology

Establishment of prevention and treatment of neuropsychiatric illnesses, such as dementia is not easy, but from numerous basic and epidemiological studies, increase of omega3 fatty acid dietary intake is reported likely to prevent the onset of dementia.

Results

This paper outlines the relevance of cognitive function and omega-3 fatty acids, especially docosahexaenoic acid, and the possibility of preventive effect of the fatty acid on dementia.
