Nick talks to Dr. John Cryan, a Professor of Anatomy & Neuroscience at University College-Cork in Ireland whose lab studies the microbiota-gut-brain axis in health & disease.
They touch on a range of topics related to how our gut microbiome affects the brain and body, including: how the microbiome affects aging and immunity; how it affects social behavior, including potential links to autism; how antibiotics and the general hyper-cleanliness of the modern world impacts the microbiome; how it affects neuropsychiatric conditions like depression; how diet influences brain inflammation; towards the end John also shared an interesting example of a food he consumes for gut health.
