In this Duke Chronicle op-ed, Ng raises concerns about how student eating habits affect the body AND the mind, and discusses the new class, "Neuroscience & Nutrition," she and Franca Alphin, Director of Nutrition Cervices at Duke and a registered dietitian, have created. In it, students can learn more about how their eating habits affect not just their bodies, but their mind, as well. They can also learn about the effects of caffeine, and what kind of nutrition is good for the brain. Please click MORE to get the rest of this story.
