Brief description The correct development of neurons in the gut is vital for digestive functions. This project will provide novel insights into how environmental factors such as the bacteria that reside in the gut and changes in diet affect maturation of the gut’s nervous system. The data will improve knowledge of the effects of widely used antibiotics and probiotics, which will facilitate strategies to improve human health and quality of life.
