How gut microbiome is affected by circadian rhythm and sleep deprivation | Matthew Walker
The gut-brain axis, the bidirectional signaling pathway between the gastrointestinal tract and the nervous system, modulates the body's stress response. A key player in this pathway is the gut microbiome, the collection of genomes of the microorganisms that exist in the gastrointestinal tract. Sleep deprivation alters the overall gut microbial make-up, which can promote dysregulation of the microbiome and in turn, altered sleep. In this clip, Dr. Matthew Walker discusses the role that sleep plays in modulating the gut microbiome.
