The Mind Gut Microbiome Connection - From Evolutionary Insights to Ecological Models


Emeran Mayer
UCLA Gail and Gerald Oppenheimer Family Center for Neurobiology of Stress

There is a growing awareness of the bidirectional relationship between our gut, its microbes and the brain, and there is a long evolutionary history which can explain the recent observations observations in humans. This ancient relationship between our gut microbes and the nervous system will not only have important implications for a better understanding of disorders of the brain and the brain gut axis. Characterizing this relationship is beginning to lead to a paradigm shift towards an ecological viewpoint of health and disease in general.
