In other words, the presence and composition of gut microbiota during development stages influence adult brain function. As researchers believe, taking antibiotics, your diet, an infection or any kind of manipulation of the microbiota might have profound knock-on effects on adult brain function. Actually, lead author Dr. Gerard Clarke says that “although we always believed…
