Tuesday, May 6, 2014 - Healthy Gut, Healthy Brain: Stress, Inflammation and Resilience

12 noon - 1:00 p.m. University Hospital, Sandridge Auditorium, McKim Hall First Floor

The brain and gut collaborate to maintain both physical and mental health. Exciting new research is enhancing our understanding of how diet, stress, the immune system, and our gut microbes influence our moods and behavior. This seminar will introduce basic aspects of brain-gut communication, and how miscommunication between the gut immune system and resident microbes interact with stress to cause problems including food allergies and sensitivities, functional and inflammatory bowel diseases, and may contribute to neurodevelopmental disorders. Strategies for managing stress and diet will be discussed as ways to restore balance and enhance healing.
