Links between probiotics, microbiota, and behavior – The Probia Study

presented by Prof, Josep Antoni Ramos-Quiroga MD, PhD, MSc

The Probia Study is a large international study across Spain, Germany, and Estonia studying the effects of probiotic formulas on the gut microbiome, behavior, and mental health in people with ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).  The expected outcomes of the study are clearly defined and will provide insight for the first time on the effects of probiotic formulations vs. placebo, compared with previous studies which demonstrated beneficial effects of probiotics without comparison.  Results of the study will demonstrate whether probiotics are significantly better than placebo.  Dr. Ramos-Quiroga’s presentation is well-organized and presented for those with beginning understanding as well as professionals in the clinical practice and research.

Dr. Ramos-Quiroga teaches and completes research in psychiatry, mental health, and addictions at Val d’Hebron Institut de Recerca, located in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain.

In this Course, there is one lesson and then a quiz. Enjoy this information on the application of neuroimaging to discover methods of identifying and treating differences in impulsivity and compulsivity.

How the Mediterranean Diet is Linked to Mental Health and Well-Being

presented by Monia Bullo, PhD

Numerous chronic conditions (dementia, obesity, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease) include debilitating symptoms of inflammation, poor microbiome (gut) functioning, and cognitive impairment effecting attention and memory.  The Mediterranean Diet has been shown to improve overall health and is being used in the Predimed Plus Study to determine the beneficial effects of healthier diet and exercise on mental health.  This is important research explained in this lesson by Dr. Bullo.

Dr. Bullo teaches and completes research in the Department of Biochemistry and Biotechnology of Universitat Rovira i Virgili located in Tarragona, Catalonia, Spain.

How stress in early life may influence development in healthy infants, and how the gut microbiota may play a role in this

presented by Professor Dr. Carolina de Weerth

We now have evidence and are doing further research on early life development in infants, how gut microbiota may influence this development, and how stress in both parents may effect infant development.

Dr. de Weerth is the Chair of Developmental Psychobiology, Professor on the Faculty of Medical Sciences, and a research Principal Investigator at the Donders Center of Medical Neurosciences and the Donders Institute of Brain Cognition and Behaviour in Nijmegen, the Netherlands.

Using Neuroimaging to Study Impulsivity and Compulsivity, and the Effect of Nutrition on the Brain and Behavior.

presented by Daan van Rooij, PhD

Neuro-imaging is another important tool in observing and learning about the effects of nutrition on the brain and behavior, particularly impulsivity and compulsivity.

Dr. van Rooij is doing post-doctoral research at Donders Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging and Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour.   He is interested in imaging genetics research into neurodevelopmental disorders, specifically by using big data and machine learning techniques to improve classification and stratification of the major neurodevelopmental disorders. He is responsible for coordinating several studies on children and adults with ADHD and ASD.

In this Course, there is one lesson and then a quiz. Enjoy this information on the application of neuroimaging to discover methods of identifying and treating differences in impulsivity and compulsivity.
