Gut-brain axis

Submission status
Open
Submission deadline

Our understanding of the gut-brain axis, the complex bi-directional communication network which links the central nervous system to peripheral intestinal functions, and specifically the integral role played by the gut microbiome, has significantly advanced in recent years. Critical gaps of knowledge however do still exist, particularly with regard to the precise mechanisms of information transmission.

This Collection aims to bring together original research on all aspects of gut-brain communication, including the neural, endocrine and immune pathways involved, and their relevance to the development, and potential mitigation, of neurological, gastrointestinal and behavioural pathologies.
