a study from researchers at two U.S. Department of Energy national laboratories traces the molecular connections between genetics, the gut microbiome, and memory in a mouse model bred to resemble the diversity of the human population. The team states one day it may be possible to use probiotics to improve memory in people with learning disabilities and neurodegenerative disorders.

Study finds the microbiota, genetics, and memory are linked.

The gut microbiome is the aggregate genome of the microbiota living in the gastrointestinal tract, implicated in numerous host systemic functions, behaviors, and diseases. Past studies have shown probiotics, ingestible … Continue Reading Study finds the microbiota, genetics, and memory are linked.
