Essential Fatty Acid Deficiency and Its Effects on the Central Nervous System
Dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) belonging to the linoleic and linolenic acid families were recognized several years ago as being essential for balanced body growth and the proper function of many tissues and organs and have since been extensively investigated. This field has recently been reviewed by Holman (1) and Alfin-Slater and Aftergood (2), while the metabolism of PUFA has been discussed by Mead (3).
