The Complex Interplay Between Gut-Brain, Gut-Liver, and Liver-Brain Axes provides current and wide-ranging knowledge on the field of gastrointestinal, liver and brain interactions. Sections introduce the pathophysiology of the gut-brain connection, including interactions in gastrointestinal and psychiatric/neurological disorders, the pathophysiology of the gut-liver connection, including the role of serotonin and its pathways in gastrointestinal disorders, the interactions between gut-microbiota and liver in chronic liver diseases, and the role of serotonin and its pathways in hepatic fibrogenesis. Finally, the pathophysiology of the liver-brain connection is described, including the role of gut-microbiota in hepatic encephalopathy and dietary and therapeutic interventions.
