When Gut Bacteria Change Brain Function - The Atlantic

"Some researchers believe that the microbiome may play a role in regulating how people think and feel."

Stephen Collins, a gastroenterology researcher at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, has found that strains of two bacteria, lactobacillus and bifidobacterium, reduce anxiety-like behavior in mice (scientists donít call it ďanxietyĒ because you canít ask a mouse how itís feeling).

Humans also carry strains of these bacteria in their guts. In one study, he and his colleague collected gut bacteria from a strain of mice prone to anxious behavior, and then transplanted these microbes into another strain inclined to be calm. The result: The tranquil animals appeared to become anxious.

Interesting, I had been aware of this experimentation in canada. This why we must be careful with fecal transplant; more than what would like can be passed on with the material! Still lots of unknown...Not only the person who gives the material must be physically healthy, but he or she must also be psychologically healthy!

Even a part of our mental health seems to be regulated by our microbiome, where most of the serotonine, among other things, is being produced. 90% of it if I remember correct.
