Retinoid X receptors, PPARs, cAMP response-element binding protein) and the associated effects on gene expression seem important for synaptic plasticity and transmission [44]. DHA supplementation supported neurite growth and synaptic protein expression in cultured neurons from embryonic mice [46]. This finding agrees with the enhancement of neurite growth in hippocampal neurons by DHA, which is assumed to promote learning [47]. The important role that DHA plays in brain structure and in numerous functions, and thus its potential to influence neurocognitive development and performance, is supported by animal studies, mainly in rodents, that showed a dependence of behaviour and learning ability on LC-PUFA status [48].

In contrast, the acquired immune response is specific for a single antigen, which must be presented by an antigenpresenting cell to an antigen-specific T cell. Due to these features, the innate response is induced quickly and is not improved by prior exposure to the triggering pathogen, while the acquired response is induced slowly but is enhanced by prior exposure to the antigen. However, the two arms of the immune system do not operate in isolation from one another: during an immune response, they interact because innate immune cells can present antigen, thus inducing the acquired response, while the acquired immune response produces chemicals that activate innate immune cells or make their processes more efficient.
