Printed Thesis Information:


Epidemiological and clinical studies indicate that overweight and
obesity are associated with increased risk for depression, but the
mechanisms linking dietary components with the development of
depression phenotype are poorly understood. To investigate this
relationship, we utilized lipidomic and transcriptomic methods to
evaluate the effects of diet on the brain.
