All the microorganisms and their genomes that reside in human intestinal tract are referred to as the gut microbiome. Research reveals that they regulate various physiological processes such as immunomodulation, adiposity, energy balance. They also play a significant role in regulating the electrophysiological activity of enteric nervous system(ENS) .
The complex two way signalling that happens between the brain and the gastrointestinal tract is delimited at hormonal, neural, and immunological levels. This paradigm is acknowledged as the brain-gut axis. The signals from central nervous system (CNS) affects the sensory, motor, and secretory functions of the GIT and visceral signals from intestinal tract has affects the neurological functions. The brain–gut axis is essential for sustaining the homeostasis .
