Priming for healthy eating via the diet microbiota Gut-Brain axis

Diet remains one of the main drivers of the obesity pandemic, in particular the overconsumption of calorically dense palatable foods in early life. There is increasing interest to further our understanding of the pathways in the brain that drive excess unhealthy food consumption and how they are established from the onset.

Effects of maternal choline supplementation on infant neurobehavioral development

Choline is an essential nutrient whose availability during pregnancy shapes fetal neurodevelopment with lifelong impacts on offspring cognitive and brain health.

Exploring the role of the enteric nervous system on myelination during early life: modulation of gut microbiota and development of the microbiota-gut-brain axis

During infancy neural axons rapid myelination, slowly consolidates spatiotemporally until adulthood to ensure neurotransmission and brain functions. The prefrontal cortex, undergoing later myelination in new-born, is affected by neonatal intestinal microbial status, and highly implicated in the development of brain in early life.

Maternal malnutrition: mother-infant microbiota transmission and susceptibility to metabolic disease

The exact causes linking prenatal and early life under- or over-nutrition with a higher risk of obesity and metabolic disease in later life remain uncertain. Previous work shows that the human body can adapt to changing nutrient availability through epigenetic mechanisms, for which plasticity is especially pronounced in early life thereby increasing the adaptability of […]

Microbiota and dysbiosis by Prof Gérard Eberl

In this webinar, Dr. Gérard Eberl explains what has been studied and discovered so far about the relationship between the microbiota and the immune system. He provides an overview of his laboratory’s current research on that relationship and outlines the path for future research in this field. About Gérard Eberl, PhD, has been Professor of […]

Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMOs) by Prof. Lars Bode

Breastfeeding is the natural and golden standard for infant feeding as it has been proven to positively influence their development. Breast milk provides the ideal balance of nutrients for the infant and contains bioactive components. Human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) are a crucial component of human milk and the third most abundant after lactose and lipids. […]
