Gut Microbiota in Early Life: Impact on Neurodevelopmental Outcomes

Rochellys Diaz Heijtz 2Dr. Rochellys Diaz Heijtz, Karolinska Institutet, Sweden, will share her latest research during Targeting Microbiota 2024 this October.

"Gut Microbiota in Early Life: Impact on Neurodevelopmental Outcomes"

Gut microbiota influences brain development and behavior, notably in neurodevelopmental disorders like autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Dr. Heijtz's lab research shows infants with heightened ASD risk display early gut microbiota changes before behavioral signs. Targeted microbial treatments, like Limosilactobacillus reuteri probiotics, may improve social behavior in ASD children. Recent preclinical studies highlight benefits of multispecies probiotics during pregnancy on offspring neurodevelopment
