NRSC 400 Gut-Microbiome-Brain Connect
Ever have a “gut reaction” or feel a little queasy when in an uneasy situation? From mental health to digestive disorders to neurodegenerative disorders, the gut appears to play a large role in regulating our overall health. In this advanced seminar, we will try to better understand how the gut communicates with the brain and vice versa. We will read books and primary literature on the topic, as well as investigate our own microbiome. Class discussion and individual presentations will be adopted. Prerequisites: BIO 132, PSYC 125 and NRSC 200

NRSC 500 Independent Study
