Thus, in a scientific journal FASEB Journal Massachusetts Institute of Technology published the results of a series of experiments which showed that the substances contained in a variety of foods can enhance cognitive abilities. One of gerbils were given portions of the substances necessary for healthy functioning brain membranes. The composition of their diet consisted of choline (in large quantities present in chicken eggs), uridinmonofosfat (found in sugar beet) and docosahexaenoic acid (fish oil). Other gerbils were satisfied the usual diet of laboratory rodents. A few weeks later, scientists tested intellectual level of both groups of animals. It was found that gerbils, sitting on a "smart" diet quickly solve proposed problems (eg, quickly found their way in the maze) than their less conventional counterparts. Under this experiment, the authors of the experiment made the assumption that in this way may improve the performance of the human brain. Subject: "poumneniya" by some food is present in the folklore of many nations. The first experimental confirmation of this theory were obtained in the late 19th century. However, until now has not been established food really can help a person smarter.
