Can Intestinal Bacteria Shape Response to Early-Life Stress?
Have a gut feeling? A growing body of research suggests that intestinal bacteria have mood-altering powers. A new study using mice investigates how anxiety and depression from early-life trauma could be triggered by bacteria in the gut. Premsyl Bercik, an author on that study and an associate professor at McMaster University in Ontario, discusses the gut-brain connection.
