This week I’m going to lead a discussion on the relationship between autism and the gut microbiota. Instead of examining one paper in detail, I’d like to give a general review of the research going on in the field. As a primer, take a quick read through this 2 page review found here. For the truely keen, I’ll probably focus most on this paper detailing the abundance of clostridial species in children with autistic spectrum disorder compared to controls.
We’re going to try a new time this week, Friday June 1st at 12 noon in HSC-3N44A. Hope to see you out!
