Our Second Brain

Your gut brain doesn't share its supply of serotonin with your cranial brain, but it does influence the cranial brain by stimulating the vagus nerve. This nerve descends from cranial brainstem through the neck to the abdomen, allowing for two-way talk between the gut & cranial brains.The gut is the chatty one, sending up 9 nerve impulses for every 1 it receives in return. Even with all this checking in, the enteric nervous system in the gut can operate largely independently of the cranial…

Gut/Brain Axis. Targeting the gut could create a new class of psychiatric treatments. Anything that exerts a psychological effect, mediated by the microbiome, is potentially a psychobiotic. This can incl things that have negative effect on gut flora like antibiotics, anti-depressants & anti-psychotics. Pathways incl enteric nervous system (a part of the nervous system located within

Human Beings have an Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) that is actually comprised of three separate subsystems, the Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS), the Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS) and the Enteric Nervous System (ENS). The enteric nervous system has been described as a "second brain," which communicates with the central nervous system (CNS) through the parasympathetic (e.g., …
