Exploring the Brain-Gut Connection

Wednesday, September 16, 2020 · 9:00 am - 10:30 am

From neural connections to potential biochemical effects of an altered microbiome to new thoughts about the blood-brain barrier, we are closer to understanding how gastrointestinal factors affect the brain and behavior. We will demonstrate this with clinical examples in individuals with autism.

Learning Objectives:

  • The participant will analyze the factors explaining the brain-gut interface, including neurological and humoral factors that comprise the brain gut connection.
  • The participant will incorporate the current literature investigating the effects of the intestinal microbiome on the brain.
  • The participant will integrate the information provided to discuss case studies illustrating behaviors in autism that are related to brain-gut dysfunction.
