Do psychobiotics work?

In this video, we discuss some studies that investigated the use of pre and probiotics on our mind

Are there interventions that can improve our mind by enhancing our gut microbiota?

In this video, we explore the results of some studies that investigated this topic in humans, trying to find another piece of the microbiota-brain-gut puzzle, and trying to understand whether the claims and generalisations around us are true.

This is the last video of this course and it brings us almost to the end of our discussion of the microbiota and the brain.

We hope that you have found this activity to be useful and interesting!
