Evidence suggests that iron deficiency (ID) affects cognitive performance, as measured in behavior. Although such effects must be mediated by changes in the brain, very few studies have included measures of brain activity to assess this relation.

Iron deficiency is closely associated with altered GABA metabolism and affective behavior. While mutation in the hemochromatosis ( HFE) gene disrupts iron homeostasis and promotes oxidative stress tha...
PLA2G6-associated neurodegeneration (PLAN, NBIA2) is the second most common type of Neurodegeneration with Brain Iron Accumulation (NBIA), caused by recessive mutations of PLA2G6 gene, which encodes C...
The function of central nervous system (CNS) processes is highly dependent on iron containing enzymes and proteins. Therefore, even mild iron deficiency (ID) may result in decreased endurance, increas...
Whole-brain recordings give us a global perspective of the brain in action. In this study, we describe a method using light field microscopy to record near-whole brain calcium and voltage activity at ...
It remains unclear whether improving iron status increases malaria risk, and few studies have looked at the effect of host iron status on subsequent malaria infection. We therefore aimed to determine ...
The purpose of this project to examine brain functions and behavior related to ID including sensory ,motor, cognitive and social /emotional functioning, and address unanswered questions ab...
The main iron regulatory protein in the human metabolism is hepcidin. In normal weight, healthy subjects, hepcidin is regulated through the iron status of the body: low iron status results...
Military personnel face intense physical and cognitive demands. Diminished iron status affects physiologic responses to these challenges. Both cross-sectional and longitudinal studies in...
It is common in many populations that babies develop iron deficiency or iron deficiency anemia (that is, too few healthy red blood cells due to lack of iron). This is due to rapid growth i...
This study aims to investigate a possible effect of iron status on temporary build-up of non-transferrin bound iron (NTBI) in healthy volunteers upon iron supplementation.
A multifunctional iron-sulfur protein that is both an iron regulatory protein and cytoplasmic form of aconitate hydratase. It binds to iron regulatory elements found on mRNAs involved in iron metabolism and regulates their translation. Its RNA binding ability and its aconitate hydrolase activity are dependent upon availability of IRON.
A term used in Eastern European research literature on brain and behavior physiology for cortical functions. It refers to the highest level of integrative function of the brain, centered in the CEREBRAL CORTEX, regulating language, thought, and behavior via sensory, motor, and cognitive processes.
Iron or iron compounds used in foods or as food. Dietary iron is important in oxygen transport and the synthesis of the iron-porphyrin proteins hemoglobin, myoglobin, cytochromes, and cytochrome oxidase. Insufficient amounts of dietary iron can lead to iron-deficiency anemia.
Behaviors expressed by individuals to protect, maintain or promote their health status. For example, proper diet, and appropriate exercise are activities perceived to influence health status. Life style is closely associated with health behavior and factors influencing life style are socioeconomic, educational, and cultural.
A multifunctional iron-sulfur protein that is both an iron regulatory protein and cytoplasmic form of aconitate hydratase. It binds to iron regulatory elements found on mRNAs involved in iron metabolism and regulates their translation. Its rate of degradation is increased in the presence of IRON.
