Abstract
R apid scientific and technological advances have allowed for a more detailed understanding of the relevance of intestinal microbiota, and the entire body-wide microbiome, to human health and well-being. Human microbiota is a diverse and dynamic ecosystem, which has evolved in a mutualistic relationship with its host. This micro-ecosystem serves the host by protecting it against pathogens, metabolizing complex lipids and polysaccharides that otherwise would be inaccessible nutrients, neutralizing drugs and carcinogens, modulating intestinal motility, and making visceral perception possible. It is now evident that the bidirectional signaling between the gastrointestinal tract and the brain, the so called ?microbiota?gut- brain axis,? is vital for maintaining homeostasis and it may be also involved in the etiology of several metabolic and mental dysfunctions/disorders. Here we review evidence on the ability of the gut microbiota to communicate with the brain and thus modulate behavior, cognitive functions, such as learning, memory and decision making processes. Role of molecular mimicry and autoantibodies in the etiology of certain brain diseases as lupus erythematosus, anorexia, and depression, Alzheimer, Multiple sclerosis and autism will be clarified. Role of probiotic and prebiotic in treating mental disorders will be also traced.
Biography
Afaf El-Ansary, female, biochemist, graduated from biochemistry department, Ain Shams University, Egypt in 1974.
