Researchers from VIB – Ku Leuven Centre of Microbiology, Belgium by analysing the health data of a large group they have identified the bacteria which may play a role in depression.

The findings appeared in the journal Nature Microbiology in which they named the bacteria producing substances which interacted with the nervous system. These bacteria are known as neuroactive and were identified as genera coprococcus and dialister a remarkable finding.

Also in the gut of the people with depression, they found a bacteria usually found in the gut of people suffering from Crohn’s disease (Inflammatory Bowel Disease ) pointing towards may be an inflammatory connection?
