Project Description

This mock editorial cover for Nature is designed to portray the correlation between brain cognition and the consumption of nuts. A recent study at the University of South Australia indicated that eating more than 10 grams of nuts per day can be associated with improved memory, reasoning, and overall brain function. A brain-shaped jar containing nuts makes the connection between nut intake and its positive effects on the brain’s functionality. Behind the brain are books and a puzzle to depict reasoning. In front of the jar is a crossword puzzle with the words: ‘nuts, brain, food, and memory.’ These keywords also help to reinforce the message of the cover article.
