Overview

Find out how your diet affects your brain, and your brain affects your diet

Over the last few years, the importance of the link between gut and brain has become clear. On this course you’ll explore this complex relationship.

You’ll learn how the brain works, and is affected by diet and nutritional deficiencies. You’ll also discover less known, cutting-edge subjects such as the gut-brain axis, the microbiome, and the relationship between food and reproductive health.

Ultimately, you’ll be able to explain this two-sided relationship: the role of diet on brain function, and its opposite - how the brain can determine our dietary choices.

This course is open to everyone, but may be of particular interest to psychologists or people working in health and well-being. No previous experience is required, though a background knowledge of biology or psychology may help.
