MECHANISTIC MODELS

Body-brain/Infant-Child model

A biologically informed mathematical model simulating growth of an infant from birth to 5 years of age including brain, muscle, adipose and other lean compartments.

AGE RANGE

0-5 years old

OUTCOMES

Body weight (fat + fat-free mass; adipose tissue sketetal muscle, brain and other lean tissues mass and protein + lipids + water (intracellular and extracellular content); Length

Predictors (other than time)

Protein-energy intake and current pool, water, lipid content in tissues

Do we have a tool for visualizing model output/predictions? If not, do we plan to?

No data available

Status

On-going

On-going work

Incorporation constraints to restrict tissue compositions to stay within physiologically relevant ranges. Calibration of model to data from controlled experiments.
