CONTENT AND LEARNING OBJECTIVES

It is now recognised that microorganisms within the gut can communicate with the brain to influence thinking and feeling. This fascinating pathway of communication, called the microbiota-gut-brain axis, can be modified to improve brain functioning, with diet being a key modifier.

In this webinar, Dr Elizabeth Schneider, postdoctoral researcher from Professor John Cryan’s lab at APC Microbiome, will outline known communication pathways from the gut to the brain. The key studies that demonstrate the effects of diet on gut-brain signalling will be presented whilst sharing the current gaps of knowledge within the field. Dietary and lifestyle habits that target the gut microbiota to consequently improve brain health will be discussed.

We’ll cover:

  • The gut microbiota functions and gut-brain communication pathways
  • The role of diet as a factor to alter gut-brain communication
  • Current research into the gut-brain axis and gaps within the field

Watch this webinar to:
