Spotlight on Science Meetings, Conferences and Events brings you information on the following: Microbiota and The Brain
This advanced course, conducted by the Neuroscience School of Advanced Studies, will focus on the tools and strategies being used to understand the effects of the microbiome on brain function and behaviour. Its Faculty will focus on all aspects of microbiome science from a basic science, clinical medicine and population-based level and how it interfaces with neuroimmunology, neuroendocrinology, nutrition, neurology & psychiatry. No advanced knowledge of the microbiome is required. Finally, it will point to the hopes (and hype) surrounding nutritional and microbial-based intervention strategies for a variety of brain disorders. It will be of interest to a wide range of basic and clinical scientists and during all sessions a strong emphasis will be placed on open, interactive discussions and a strong encouragement for participants to interact as much as possible with the Faculty.
