Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA; 22:6n-3), is much more abundant in brain and retina than elsewhere. This alerted scientists to possible special metabolic selections and functions for DHA. Dramatic results (2:31 min videoshow the need for DHA to develop effective learning and memory. Other studies have shown the benefit of DHA during recovery from brain damage.
