Abstract

Maternal Dietary Choline Status Influences Brain Grey and White Matter Development in Young Pigs

Abstract

Background

Choline is an essential nutrient that is pivotal to proper brain development. Research in animal models suggests that perinatal choline deficiency influences neuron development in the hippocampus and cortex, yet these observations require invasive techniques.

Objective

This study aimed to characterize the effects of perinatal choline deficiency on grey and white matter development using non-invasive neuroimaging techniques in the young pig.
