The involvement of intestinal bacteria in gut-brain communication could help to explain the mysteries of irritable bowel syndrome, but the search continues for definitive evidence. 
PROBIOTICS AND MANAGEMENT OF AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDERS
TLDR
This review specifically deals with the analysis of microbiota of gut in autism spectrum disorders, a group of neurological illness which causes difficulty in social behaviour and communication. Expand
Gut microbiome composition and diversity are related to human personality traits
TLDR
Diversity analyses of the gut microbiome reveal that people with larger social networks tend to have a more diverse microbiome, suggesting that social interactions may shape the microbial community of the human gut. Expand
Rethinking antimicrobial stewardship paradigms in the context of the gut microbiome
TLDR
Current evidence for antibiotic effects on gut microbiota is reviewed and possible prescribing and stewardship approaches that would seek to minimize these effects are explored. Expand
Irritable bowel syndrome and gut microbiota.
TLDR
This review elucidates recent advances in IBS and the gut microbiota and concludes that microbiota changes are one underlying factor in perpetuating global IBS symptoms. Expand
The Gut Microbiota and Autism Spectrum Disorders
TLDR
The bidirectional interactions between the central nervous system and the gastrointestinal tract (brain-gut axis) and the role of the gut microbiota in the central nerve system (CNS) and ASD are reviewed and microbiome-mediated therapies might be a safe and effective treatment for ASD. Expand
The Microbiota-Gut-Brain Axis.
TLDR
Future studies will focus on understanding the mechanisms underlying the microbiota-gut-brain axis and attempt to elucidate microbial-based intervention and therapeutic strategies for neuropsychiatric disorders. Expand
The microbiota-gut-brain axis: Focus on the fundamental communication pathways.
TLDR
This chapter provides a description of the chief endocrine, immune and neuronal pathways involved in this bidirectional communication of the gut-brain connecting pathway, and opens an exciting scenario on the possibility to target specific neuronal or hormonal pathways. Expand
Overview of Brain-to-Gut Axis Exposed to Chronic CNS Bacterial Infection(s) and a Predictive Urinary Metabolic Profile of a Brain Infected by Mycobacterium tuberculosis
TLDR
The premise here is that chronic CNS bacterial infection(s) will affect the gut-microbiome and that perturbed metabolism in both the CNS and gut will release metabolites into the blood that are filtered (kidneys) and excreted in the urine. Expand
Overview of Brain-to-Gut Axis Exposed to Chronic CNS Bacterial Infection(s) and a Predictive Urinary Metabolic Profile of a Brain Infected by Mycobacterium tuberculosis
TLDR
The premise here is that chronic CNS bacterial infection(s) will affect the gut-microbiome and that perturbed metabolism in both the CNS and gut will release metabolites into the blood that are filtered (kidneys) and excreted in the urine. Expand
A psychology of the human brain–gut–microbiome axis
TLDR
The role psychology has to play in understanding the brain–gut–microbiome axis is outlined, with a focus on human psychology and the use of research in laboratory animals to model human psychology. Expand

TLDR
The probiotic Bifidobacterium longum NCC3001 normalizes anxiety‐like behavior and hippocampal brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in mice with infectious colitis and test whether the anxiolytic effect of B. longum involves vagal integrity, and changes in neural cell function. Expand
Critical role of gut microbiota in the production of biologically active, free catecholamines in the gut lumen of mice.
TLDR
Results indicate that gut microbiota play a critical role in the generation of free CA in the gut lumen, and intraluminal administration of DA increased colonic water absorption in an in vivo ligated loop model of SPF-M, thus suggesting that luminal DA plays a role as a proabsorptive modulator of water transport in the colon. Expand
Faecal microbiota composition and host–microbe cross-talk following gastroenteritis and in postinfectious irritable bowel syndrome
TLDR
The faecal microbiota of patients with PI-IBS differs from that of healthy controls and resembles that of patients in patients with IBS-D, suggesting a common pathophysiology. Expand
An irritable bowel syndrome subtype defined by species-specific alterations in faecal microbiota
TLDR
Analysis of the faecal microbiota in IBS and control subjects identified several clear associations with clinical data and a distinct subset of IBS patients with alterations in their microbiota that did not correspond to IBS subtypes, as defined by the Rome II criteria. Expand
Global and deep molecular analysis of microbiota signatures in fecal samples from patients with irritable bowel syndrome.
TLDR
Global and deep molecular analysis of fecal samples indicates that patients with IBS have a different composition of microbiota, and correlation analysis of the microbial groups indicated the involvement of several groups of Firmicutes and Proteobacteria in the pathogenesis of IBS. Expand
Disturbance of the gut microbiota in early-life selectively affects visceral pain in adulthood without impacting cognitive or anxiety-related behaviors in male rats
TLDR
A temporary disruption of the gut microbiota in early-life results in very specific and long-lasting changes in visceral sensitivity in male rats, a hallmark of stress-related functional disorders of the brain-gut axis such as irritable bowel disorder. Expand
GASTROENTEROLOGY
Steatosis and steatohepatitis! • Aetiology alcohol, metabolic syndrome, starvation, Wilson’s, amiodarone, steroids! • NAFLD commonest liver disease in West; mostly related to metabolic syndrome! •Expand
Ingestion of Lactobacillus strain regulates emotional behavior and central GABA receptor expression in a mouse via the vagus nerve
TLDR
Chronic treatment with L. rhamnosus induced region-dependent alterations in GABAB1b mRNA in the brain with increases in cortical regions and concomitant reductions in expression in the hippocampus, amygdala, and locus coeruleus, in comparison with control-fed mice, highlighting the important role of bacteria in the bidirectional communication of the gut–brain axis. Expand
Consumption of fermented milk product with probiotic modulates brain activity.
TLDR
Alterations in intrinsic activity of resting brain indicated that ingestion of FMPP was associated with changes in midbrain connectivity, which could explain the observed differences in activity during the task. Expand
Normal gut microbiota modulates brain development and behavior
TLDR
It is demonstrated that germ free (GF) mice display increased motor activity and reduced anxiety, compared with specific pathogen free (SPF) mice with a normal gut microbiota, suggesting that the microbial colonization process initiates signaling mechanisms that affect neuronal circuits involved in motor control and anxiety behavior.
