From Crohn’s disease to asthma, obesity or even type 2 diabetes, gut microbiota dysbiosis has already been linked to a wide range of human diseases. Even to mental health and behavior. Previous research studies have already shown there is a connection between our gut and our brain. But as they have been done using animal models, could these results found…

Over the past five years, the European Union-funded microbiome project MyNewGut, coordinated by Yolanda Sanz (CSIC, Spain), has looked at the gut microbiota’s influence on energy balance, brain development, diet-related diseases and behavior. Now, the project has come to an end and MyNewGut’s main findings and achievements were presented at the MyNewGut Final Conference on 18 October 2018 in Brussels…

Recent advances in research have described the importance of gut microbiota in influencing interactions between the central and the enteric nervous systems. These brain-gut interactions appear to be bidirectional by means of neural, endocrine, immune, and humoral signals. Most of the data have been acquired using rodents (mice or rats) and pigs.   Evidence of microbiota-mental health interactions comes from…
