The book comprehensively reviews the role of nutrition in psychiatric disorders. It provides mechanistic insights into the effects of nutrition on metabolic pathways, mitochondrial nutrients, neurodegeneration and CNS disorders, cell signaling, and neuronal functions.  The book further highlights the role of diet in preventing and treating mental health and modifying drug treatment effects. Further, it explores the relationship between nutrition and psychiatric disorders, including depression, autism, anxiety, Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder, and OCD. The book further explores the recent advancements in understanding the important role of nutrients as therapeutics in various psychiatric disorders. Lastly, it presents an overview of nutrients as neuroprotective agents along with the main principles of nutrigenomics. The book is essential reading for neuroscientists interested interest in food therapeutic strategies.
