Researchers have discovered another purpose for the gut-brain axis; relaying information to the hippocampus to store information about our environment and location.
A new study reports a direct correlation between health and gut bacteria in older people. Researchers report healthy elderly people have similar overall microbiota composition to people decades younger.
A diet rich in fermented foods, such as yogurt and kimchi, can help to improve gut microbiome diversity and reduce symptoms of chronic inflammation, a new study reports.
Following a 12 year long study, researchers have identified seven phenoclasses that can help doctors to diagnose and track the progression of bipolar disorder in patients.
Genetic risk factors, age and gut bacteria appear to work in collaboration to trigger multiple sclerosis, a new study reports.
Even during early stages of the disease, gut bacteria in those with Parkinson's differs significantly from those without the disease, a new study reports.
Findings may explain why children born by C-sections are more prone to suffer from chronic immune system diseases that those born via vaginal birth, researchers report.
A synthetic version of a fibupeptide, which is naturally produced by the microbiome, may help in the fight against antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Lugdunin has been shown to be effective against MRSA. The findings could help in the creation of a new class of antibiotics to treat infections currently resistant to drugs on the market.
Study reports specific gut bacteria can influence the development of Alzheimer's disease. In mouse models, long term antibiotic treatment reduced inflammation and the formation of amyloid plaques. However, the reduction was only seen in males. Additionally, the antibiotic treatment altered the activation of microglia in the male mouse models.
