Abstract: Iron is an essential element of brain metabolism. Iron deficiency can cause changes in the temperate of neurotransmitters, decrease myelin production, damage synapses, and decline the function of the basal ganglia. Therefore, iron deficiency anemia can adversely affect psychomotor development and cognitive function and endanger the healthy development of infants. Understanding the relationship between iron deficiency and psychomotor development, cognitive function and neurobehavioral, clarifying the efficacy of iron supplementation and carrying out the test of serum iron content in child care is of great significance in formulating public health strategies for early prevention of iron deficiency.

Key words: iron, iron deficiency anemia, cognitive function, neurobehavioral disorders, children

摘要: 铁是大脑新陈代谢的基本元素,缺铁可引起神经递质稳态的改变、减少髓鞘的产生、损害突触的形成、并使基底神经节功能下降,因此,缺铁性贫血会对精神运动发育、认知功能和神经行为产生不利影响,危害婴幼儿的健康发育。了解铁缺乏与精神运动发育、认知功能和神经行为的关系,弄清补充铁的疗效并在儿童保健时开展血清铁含量检验,对制定早期预防铁缺乏的公共卫生策略具有十分重要的意义。
