Behavioral sci­ entists have tried to correlate the findings of the biochemists and neurochemists to the "working" of the mind. critical results of malnutrition on physique progress and serve as can frequently be reversed via corrective approaches. but if such results comprise the impression on mind improvement, the result could be devas­ tating. Underdevelopment of the mind because of malnutrition in the course of formative years won't reply to corrective measures in later existence.
