Malnutrition and Animal Models of Cognitive Development

  • David A. Levitsky
Part of the Advances in Behavioral Biology book series (ABBI, volume 14)

Abstract

I would like to begin by saying that the work presented here and probably at some other points throughout the conference is a result of a close collaborative effort. It is a truly multidisciplinary effort between myself as a psychologist, or more appropriately, a behaviorist, my students, and Dr. Richard H. Barnes, a well-known nutritionist, who is one of the pioneers in the study of nutrition and behavior.
