The Dietetics of the Brain Intelligence and Pleasure Publication date : March 1, 1990

What mechanisms govern our cravings, our taste, our nutritional needs? How should we eat to think well and work productively? J.-M. Bourre, a neurotoxicologist, celebrates the pleasures of a greedy brain, a gastronomical brain. He takes us on a fascinating exploration of the complex chemistry which links our brain to our plate in the world of proteins, vitamins, mineral salts, and lipids.
