Free Preview
  • Provides readers with a full understanding of the capabilities of the microbiota to interface with the brain and form the microbiota-gut-brain axis and a detailed examination of the consequences of the microbiota-driven gut-to-brain communication for both health and disease
  • Represents the realization that any attempt to understand the ability of the microbiota to interface with the brain must attempt to address multiple disciplines
  • Chapters cut across disciplines of microbiology, endocrinology, neurophysiology, evolution, and disease

About this book

The field of microbial endocrinology is expressly devoted to understanding the mechanisms by which the microbiota (bacteria within the microbiome) interact with the host (“us”). This interaction is a two-way street and the driving force that governs these interactions are the neuroendocrine products of both the host and the microbiota. Chapters include neuroendocrine hormone-induced changes in gene expression and microbial endocrinology and probiotics. This is the first in a series of books dedicated to understanding how bi-directional communication between host and bacteria represents the cutting edge of translational medical research, and hopefully identifies new ways to understand the mechanisms that determine health and disease.​
