Her academic publications include experimental, epidemiological, genetic and brain imaging studies; the first controlled treatment trials investigating effects of omega-3 (and omega-6) fatty acids in ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia and related conditions; and the earliest case reports of potential benefits from similar nutritional interventions for depression and schizophrenia. Alex is also a highly experienced teacher and speaker for public and professional as well as academic audiences, and a frequent contributor for the media. Her book for parents and professionals – ‘They Are What You Feed Them’ – is dedicated to FAB Research, the charity she founded to raise awareness of the links between diet and mental health, wellbeing and performance.
