New research has discovered a unique subset of astrocytes (non-neuronal brain cells) can be triggered into anti-inflammatory activity by signals from the gut microbiome

New research published in the journal Nature is describing the discovery of a novel subset of brain cell with the capacity to prevent neuroinflammation. This anti-inflammatory activity is modulated by molecules induced by gut bacteria, revealing an exciting new gut-brain pathway that could guide research into a number of therapies for neurological disease.
