Technical Abstract: In recent years, a large body of evidence has emerged showing that our diet can significantly influence the incidence of age-related cognitive decline. In particular, data from epidemiology as well as rodent and human intervention studies has shown that diets rich in berries are associated with both a reduced risk of cognitive decline as we age and improvements in cognitive function. Here, we will review this evidence and suggest some potential mechanisms underlying these effects on neural function across the life span.
