Nutrition and Mental Development.
Crnic, Linda S.
American Journal of Mental Deficiency, v88 n5 p526-33 Mar 1984
Studies on the effects of malnutrition on mental development are reviewed and the complexity of factors (such as alternatives in maternal behavior) surrounding malnutrition in animal studies is noted. Findings are cited which suggest that environmental stimulation may in part reverse the neurological effects and remediate some behavioral effects of malnutrition. (Author/CL)
