How do gut bacteria affect the brain?

 

In the latest video from Argonne’s Microbiome Project, Jack Gilbert explores the relationship between the microbes living in your gut and your brain, with the help of Sangram Sisodia and Myles Minter from the UChicago. In 2016, they published a study suggesting that the composition and diversity of bacteria in the gut play an important role in regulating immune system activity that impacts progression of Alzheimer’s disease. Their research, and more like it from the Microbiome Center, points to exciting new possibilities for treating mental health.
