Food for Thought: The Gut Brain Connection with Dr Caroline Gilmartin – Brain Snack Session

Your brain, intestines and your gut microbes are intimately connected – information flows between them making “gut feelings” and “ butterflies in your stomach” a reality.   But we now know that if something happens to upset this system, all kinds of mayhem can ensue. Find out how the gut brain-axis helps to determine your personality, your mental health and even how hungry you feel.

Dr Caroline Gilmartin is a fermenting specialist with a background in microbiology and genetics.

Join Caroline for this Brain Snack session on the relationship between your gut and your brain – bring a pen and paper because we hope you’ll be learning a few things!
