MICROBES ON THE MIND

MICROBES ON THE MIND

In the last decade, a new scientific research field has grown up around a startling insight: the trillions of bacteria that live in our gut seem to affect how the brain develops and functions.

Whilst this scientific research is still at an early stage, results are already escaping the laboratory and catching the attention of journalists, doctors, and patients alike. This project therefore asks: what does microbiome research mean for our understanding of mental illness and its treatment?

How is meaning created within and across the domains of science, media culture, and personal experience? The methods include open, experimental workshops in the Mind the Gut exhibition at Medical Museion, designed through collaboration with creative writers.
