Ryan Carvalho, MD - The Fats of life in early childhood brain development
Over the last few decades, epidemiological, clinical, and interventional studies have taught us that the developmental origins of health and disease often begin very early in life. We have also learned that growth and development is heterogeneous across time. While social, emotional, and cognitive development continues through adulthood, a significant amount of the brain’s structure and capacity is shaped early in life before the age of 3 years.
