Gut-Microbiota-Brain Axis in Neonates and Infants
Recent advances in next generation sequencing have improved our understanding of the important role of gut microbiota in influencing brain development and function; i.e: 'gut-microbiota-brain' (GMB) axis. This is a bi-directional pathway where brain and gut microbes share detailed communications through immunological pathways, hormones and metabolites. GMB plays a crucial role in early brain development and function and impacts on long-term neurodevelopment and neurobehaviour. Understanding these roles is important to understand effective management and potentially prevention. This presentation will cover important aspects of GMB development, physiology, function and translation in clinical medicine for neonates and infants.
