To put it simply: they’re probiotics and prebiotics for the brain.Psychobiotics are probiotics and prebiotics for the brain.Psychobiotics are able to influence brain function because the brain and the gut microbiota are in constant crosstalk through the gut-brain axis. By modulating the composition or the metabolism of the gut microbiota, psychobiotics change signaling from the gut to the brain. And because this signaling impacts brain activity, it is …

How Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy Promotes Neural Plasticity — A Q&A With Molly Maloof, MDMolly Maloof, MD is here to share with us the neuroscience behind using psychedelic-assisted therapy to support trauma healing and promote structural and functional neural plasticity.†What makes the neuroplastic state promoted by psychedelics different from existing neuroplastic capabilities of the brain?Anyone can harness neuroplasticity through exercise, meditation, and other activities that engage cognition. However, when someone is suffering from poor mental health or chronic stress, this can make the brain more rigid. Research suggests that a deficiency in neuroplasticity is associated with mood disturbances, along with sleep difficulties, and overstimulation. Psychedelics can …

A cognitively rich and physically active lifestyle can be very beneficial for brain health and cognitive performance. Underlying these effects is one of the most important properties of the brain: brain plasticity, or neuroplasticity, is the brain’s capacity to adapt based on life experiences and it’s what allows us to learn and become more skilled with practice.Brain plasticity acts at a functional level by adjusting the functional properties of existing neurons and synapses through molecular changes, and at a structural level through changes in neuronal morphology, neuronal connections, glial cells, and other dynamic adjustments in cellular structures. To learn about …
