Summary of Talk:

  • Gut microbiome composition and functionality have been recently found to be linked to immediate and short-term memory and several tests evaluating inhibitory control in subjects with and without obesity.
  • Brain structures associated with these cognitive domains were also associated with gut microbiome alterations.
  • The impairments in immediate memory and in inhibitory control of the donors were phenocopied to recipient mice through faecal microbiota transplantation, resulting in alterations of memory, reversal learning and changes in mouse brain transcriptomics.
