Einstein A Go-Go: Professor Felice Jacka on How What We Eat Influences How We Feel
Despite the increasing awareness of the importance of both good mental health and eating well, very rarely are the two discussed together. Professor Felice Jacka is the Director of the Food and Mood Centre at Deakin University, which studies “how what we eat intersects with our mental and brain health”. She chats with Dr Shane about how a good diet can be used in rehabilitation. From improved hospital food to teaching cooking classes at treatment centres, Professor Jacka’s work explores what can be done (and eaten) to help our brains stay strong and healthy.
