Could what you eat affect your mental health? You may have heard how probiotic-rich foods help maintain your digestive system, but is there also a connection between your gut bacteria and your brain?

PLEASE NOTE THAT REGISTRATION FOR THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL. Any additional registrants will be added to what is already a substantial waiting list. If you have already registered but realize that you won't be able to come on January 15, please cancel your registration at https://calendar.kfpl.ca/myevents [or (613) 549-8888] so someone from the waiting list may attend.

This is the first presentation of our new Brain Storm monthly speakers' series, in which students from the Centre for Neuroscience Studies (CNS) at Queen's University share their research into the molecular and cellular inner workings of the brain.

This month Queen's PhD candidate Caroline Wallace discusses the link between the gut and the brain, and how diet and nutrition can affect our mental health through the microbes in our gut.

This program requires registration.
