MIT and Harvard Study links Gut & Microbiome with Neurobehaviors

The connection between the microbial composition of our intestines and behavior keeps coming up in discussions on gut microbes and their wide-reaching effects, as biological researchers of late are focusing more of their interest and energies into deciphering the complex composition of microbes residing in our guts and the influence on our organism in all of its various aspects.

In a landmark 2018 study published in Molecular Psychiatry, a teamof researchers from Harvard Medical School, the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, and the University of Toyama, found that “changes in gut microbiota can control brain insulin signaling and metabolite levels,” which in turn impacts neurobehaviors.
