Dr. M. Lebow is a neuroscientist. After years as a biomedical researcher studying the neurobiology of psychiatric diseases such as post-traumatic stress disorder, she wanted to branch out of the lab to educate people on their most valuable and most malleable asset: their brain. Our brain is not only what makes us who we are, but it is also the largest consumer of most of our biological resources and energy. To that end, every bite we take can potentially influence our behavioral state. If we are hungry, we can’t focus. If we are sick, we can’t think. If we are sleepy, we can’t remember. Our brain needs tending to. In this blog, she will combine the important principles of brain function and the connection between diet and behavior.
