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

The vagus nerve is known as the "wandering nerve" because it has multiple branches that diverge from two thick stems rooted in the cerebellum and brainstem that wander to the lowest viscera of our abdomen touching our hearts and most major organs along the way. Vagus means "wandering" in Latin. It meanders all the way down, into the belly, spreading fibers to the tongue, pharynx, vocal chords, lungs, heart, stomach, intestines and glands that produce anti-stress enzymes and hormones.
