The microbiota–gut–brain axis: A novel nutritional therapeutic target for growth retardation
TLDR
The role of microbiota in GR is summarized with human and animal models, and nutritional therapeutic strategies by the intervention of microbiota-gut-brain axis are proposed, which may provide novel perspectives for the treatment of GR in humans and animals.
Gut microbiota diversity but not composition is related to saliva cortisol stress response at the age of 2.5 months
TLDR
The results suggest that the gut microbiota composition is associated with environmental factors, such as delivery mode and number of siblings, rather than with cortisol stress responsiveness, in this age group.
Modulation of Gut-Brain Axis by Probiotics: A Promising Anti-depressant Approach
TLDR
The role of gut microbiota in depression and supplements such as probiotics that are useful in the treatment of depression are reviewed.
Impact of gut microbiota on neurological diseases: Diet composition and novel treatments
TLDR
The role of this intestinal ecosystem, the effects of dietary changes and the administration of nutritional supplements, such as probiotics, prebiotics, or fecal transplantation in neuropsychiatric disorders are analyzed.
Role of Maternal Microbiota and Nutrition in Early-Life Neurodevelopmental Disorders
TLDR
An overview of the implications of maternal nutrition on neurodevelopmental disorders and the establishment and maturation of gut microbiota in the offspring is provided.
Mechanistic Insights into the Link between Gut Dysbiosis and Major Depression: An Extensive Review
TLDR
The etiopathogenic link between gut dysbiosis and depression with preclinical and clinical evidence is summarized and information on the recent therapies and supplements, such as probiotics, prebiotics, short-chain fatty acids, and vitamin B12, omega-3 fatty acid, etc., which target the gut–brain axis (GBA) for the effective management of depressive behavior and anxiety are collated.
Effects of Microbiota Imbalance in Anxiety and Eating Disorders: Probiotics as Novel Therapeutic Approaches
TLDR
The main microbial signatures observed in patients with generalized anxiety and/or eating disorders as well as the importance of probiotics as a preventive or a therapeutic tool in these pathologies are addressed.
Probiotics and the Microbiota-Gut-Brain Axis: Focus on Psychiatry
TLDR
Microbiome-based therapies such as probiotics could be cautiously recommended for depression to enhance beneficial bacteria in the gut and to improve mood through the gut-brain axis.
Gut-Brain Axis: Probiotic, Bacillus subtilis, Prevents Aggression via the Modification of the Central Serotonergic System
TLDR
Dietary probiotic, Bacillus subtilis, could be a suitable strategy for increasing hosts’ mental health by reducing aggressive behaviors following social challenge.
Microbiota–Gut–Brain Axis and Epilepsy: A Review on Mechanisms and Potential Therapeutics
TLDR
A better understanding of the role of the microbiota in the gut–brain axis, especially the intestinal one, would help investigate the mechanism, diagnosis, prognosis evaluation, and treatment of intractable epilepsy.

Gut instincts: microbiota as a key regulator of brain development, ageing and neurodegeneration
TLDR
There is a growing realisation that the gut–brain axis and its regulation by the microbiota may play a key role in the biological and physiological basis of neurodevelopmental, age‐related and neurodegenerative disorders, and it is plausible that such neuropsychiatric disorders might be treated by targeting the microbiota either by microbiota transplantation, antibiotics or psychobiotics.
On communication between gut microbes and the brain
TLDR
Study of microbiota–gut–brain communication is providing a deeper understanding of the relationship between the gut bacteria and their hosts while also suggesting the potential for microbial-based therapeutic strategies that may aid in the treatment of mood disorders.
The impact of microbiota on brain and behavior: mechanisms & therapeutic potential.
TLDR
The concept of a microbiome-brain-gut axis is emerging, suggesting microbiota-modulating strategies may be a tractable therapeutic approach for developing novel treatments for CNS disorders.

TLDR
This work focuses on bidirectional signaling between the gut microbiome and the host in terms of commensal microbiota affecting the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal HPA axis response and behaviors and the role of gut luminal catecholamines and γ-aminobutyric acid, both of which are presumed to be involved in this signaling.
From gut dysbiosis to altered brain function and mental illness: mechanisms and pathways
TLDR
Roles of gut microbiome in shaping brain development and neurological function, and the mechanisms by which it can contribute to mental illness are examined; how the insight provided by this new and exciting field of research can inform care and provide a basis for the design of novel, microbiota-targeted, therapies is discussed.
Modulatory Effects of Gut Microbiota on the Central Nervous System: How Gut Could Play a Role in Neuropsychiatric Health and Diseases
TLDR
The evidence supporting the role of gut microbiota in modulating neuropsychological functions of the central nervous system and exploring the potential underlying mechanisms is summarized.
Breaking down the barriers: the gut microbiome, intestinal permeability and stress-related psychiatric disorders
TLDR
This review will discuss the possible role played by the gut microbiota in maintaining intestinal barrier function and the CNS consequences when it becomes disrupted, and draw on both clinical and preclinical evidence to support this concept.
Mind-altering microorganisms: the impact of the gut microbiota on brain and behaviour
TLDR
The emerging concept of a microbiota–gut–brain axis suggests that modulation of the gut microbiota may be a tractable strategy for developing novel therapeutics for complex CNS disorders.
