The Gut-Brain Axis: Dietary, Probiotic, and Prebiotic Interventions on the Microbiotaexamines the potential for microbial manipulation as a therapeutic avenue in central nervous system disorders in which an altered microbiota has been implicated, and explores the mechanisms, sometimes common, by which the microbiota may contribute to such disorders.

  • Focuses on specific areas in which the microbiota has been implicated in gut-brain communication
  • Examines common mechanisms and pathways by which the microbiota may influence brain and behavior
  • Identifies novel therapeutic strategies targeted toward the microbiota in the management of brain activity and behavior
