Greater cognitive flexibility associated with increased omega 3 levels

Greater cognitive flexibility associated with increased omega 3 levelsMay 20 2015. An article published this month in Frontiers of Aging and Neuroscience reveals more cognitive flexibility and greater volume in an area of the brain known to contribute to this ability in association with higher levels of omega 3 fatty acids.

The study included 40 cognitively intact older adults whose APOEe4 genetic variant put them at risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. Fasting plasma samples were analyzed for the omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. Neuropsychological tests measured executive function, including cognitive flexibility, which describes the ability to switch between tasks efficiently. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) measured gray matter volumes in numerous regions of the brain, including the anterior cingulate area.
