3. The microbiota-gut-brain axis: focus on the fundamental communication pathways
4. Microbiome composition and locations
Eugene B. Chang
The Microbiome, Volume 176, assembles known facts and provides guidance for their implementation on topics relating to associations between the gut microbiome and personality traits, depression, anxiety, autism, schizophrenia, cognition, dementia and neurodegeneration. Additionally, this volume considers the influence of the maternal microbiome on brain development, with chapters covering Intervention, prevention, and the brain: prebiotics, probiotics, and fecal transplants, The microbiota-gut-brain axis: focus on the fundamental communication pathways, and Microbiome composition and locations.
- Provides a comprehensive review of the bidirectional interactions between gut microbes and the brain
- Includes data across the lifespan
- Focuses on microbiome related therapies with broad appeal within, and beyond, the medical and scientific community
This volume is appropriate for clinicians, researchers and inquisitive lay persons interested in learning more about how the gut influences personality, mental health, and cognition. It may be of particular interest for gastroenterologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and neurologists

Dr. Lora Kasselman is a scientist with 19 years of experience in academia and industry, with her research focusing on neurobiology and inflammation. During and after her doctoral training in Neuropsychology, she conducted research on vascular inflammation in diseases such as scleroderma and peripheral neuropathy. Dr. Kasselman's background training is in behavioral neuroscience and her research projects reflect an interest in inflammation in general with a special interest in neurovascular inflammation. Throughout the years she has gained extensive experience in designing and conducting behavioral experiments. In addition, she has many years of experience in vascular, neuronal, and inflammation analyses using histological and molecular techniques such as immunohistochemistry and protein detection. Recently, through collaborative work with the Department of Statistics, Dr. Kasselman's interests shifted towards the use of publicly available data sets including the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) for analysis of probiotic consumption behavior and outcomes such as cardiovascular disease and cognitive dysfunction. In order to further her knowledge in statistical analyses of large complex data sets she is currently enrolled in the CUNY School of Public Health’s Epidemiology and Biostatistics MPH program where she is working with several faculty on microbiome data sets.
