Gut Bacteria Regulate Happiness

Gut Bacteria Regulate Happiness | All Together Now | Scoop.it
APC scientists have shown that brain levels of serotonin, the ‘happy hormone’ are regulated by the amount of bacteria in the gut during early life.

 

This research has multiple health implications as it shows that manipulations of the microbiota (e.g. by antibiotics, diet, or infection) can have profound knock-on effects on brain function. . . .

[Interesting . . . especially considering that gut regulation and other emotion-related processes are affected by early-life bonding (attachment . . . relationships). You can't separate bodily health from mental health in the end.]

The Neuroscience of Effort

The Neuroscience of Effort | All Together Now | Scoop.it

Given the importance of this mental tug of war, I’ve always been deeply curious about how it unfolds inside my head. A fascinating new paper in the Journal of Neuroscience led by Michael Treadway at Vanderbilt University begins to unpack the mystery. It’s a first draft of what happens in the brain as we choose between effort and indulgence, work and distraction.
