Gut microbiome and brain
Bidirectional communication between the gut microbiota and brain plays a key role in maintaining brain health. This review focused on the mechanism of this interaction and modulatory role of the gut microbiota in brain related pathological conditions, such as anxiety, depression, stress and cognition.
In vitro, in vivo, and human studies providing evidence of the microbiota-gut-brain communication and potential beneficial effects of pre- and probiotics in the management of neurological conditions are discussed in more details.
