A gut feeling about the brain: microbiome as a key regulator of neurodevelopment and behaviour

Thursday 14 March: 6:10pm - 7:00pm

Robinson College, Grange Road, CB3 9AN

Cambridge Neuroscience Public Lecture

Ever had a “gut feeling” about something? It turns out, the connection between our gut and our brain might be stronger than we think. John F Cryan, Professor and Chair of Anatomy & Neuroscience at University College, Cork and Principal Investigator at APC Microbiome Ireland shares surprising facts and insights about how our thoughts and emotions are connected to our guts. As a TEDMED speaker, Professor Cryan shares his fascination with biomedicine and why it offers a perfect way to explore the interaction between the brain, gut and microbiome, and how this relationship applies to stress- and immune-related disorders such as depression, anxiety, irritable bowel syndrome, obesity, and neurodevelopmental disorders including autism.

Doors will open at 18:00. The talk will start at 18:10 and finish at 19:00
No access to the lecture before 18:00
