The Gut-Brain Axis and the Development of Autism Webinar
November 14 @ 12:00pm - 1:00pm CST
This webinar will be recorded. Register now to reserve your spot, even if you can’t attend live.
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is likely influenced by the connection between the gut microbiome and the brain, starting from early development, though the precise biological mechanisms underlying ASD remain unclear.
What scientists do know is that these processes are crucial for healthy development, and disruptions can lead to a range of health problems, including neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders. Our research on the gut-brain axis sheds light on the development of ASD and offers a preview of potential future microbial-based therapies aimed at addressing behavioral challenges and gastrointestinal symptoms associated with ASD.
In this webinar, you will:
- Learn about the human microbiome and its influence on various health conditions
- Learn about the gut-brain axis and its role in linking the gut microbiome to neurodevelopment
- Explore the interactions between the microbiome, diet, immunity, and metabolism
- Learn about the current efforts in developing microbiome-based therapies
