The microbiota–gut–brain (MGB) axis is at the center of a new approach to mental health. Consequently, there has been an explosion of interest in the study of microorganisms inhabiting the gastrointestinal tract (gut microbiota) and their impact on the body. New studies reveal that bacteria, including commensal, probiotic, and pathogenic bacteria, in the gastrointestinal tract can activate neural pathways and central nervous system signaling systems.
This interactive webinar will:
- Examine the bidirectional communication between the microbiota and the central nervous system, which occurs through autonomic, neuroendocrine, enteric, and immune system pathways
- Focus on the disease processes of depression and anxiety
