Fat Intake Influences Cognitive Function

A retrospective trial has shown that a high intake of PUFA's ( polyunsaturated fatty acids ) may help school-aged children perform better on key cognitive functioning tests ( digit span test ).

Total fat and saturated fat intakes were unrelated to measures of cognitive and psychosocial functioning, but an increased intake of cholesterol may be associated with a poorer performance of the digit span test.
