Abstract The brain is an organ rich in lipids, which are involved in the structure and function of cell membranes. The glycerophospholipids in the brain contain a high proportion of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA). An emerging interest in treating neuropsychological disorders with omega 3 PUFA has led to clinical studies in this area and elucidation of the possible mechanisms of action of these PUFA.
