Course Overview

Who would have thought that the microbes in our GI tract can affect our mood and mental health. But they do. What we eat determines the make-up of our microbiome, which then sends signals to our brain. Learn how the gut-brain-microbiome connection works, dietary influences on the microbiome, and how what you eat is tied to your mood, and to mental health.
