So, in mice that were fed a diet enriched with walnuts, improved learning skills, memory, motor skills, decreased anxiety. Scientists believe that the high antioxidant content of walnuts (3.7 mmol / ounce), was a factor in protecting the mouse brain from the degeneration.

Dr. Abha Chauhan: "These results are very promising and lay the groundwork for future human studies. Our research adds facts about the protective effect of walnuts on cognitive function."
