Not only neurons but glial cells, blood flow, blood-brain barrier integrity, extracellular matrix, and further tissue components of the brain are impacted by health and diet. With a poor diet and an accumulation of noxious environmental exposures the integrity of these physical systems can be degraded. This can compromise the capacity of the physical structures of the brain to generate finely synchronized oscillatory rhythms. This talk will review this brain biology and in vivo brain imaging methods of studying it, as well as the importance of such research for making a powerful case for evolutionarily grounded dietary transformation.
