From moods to memory, the brain in our gut has a big impact on the brain in our heads.
RMIT neuroscientist Elisa Hill-Yardin says our gut brain is one big nervous system and could play a part in neurological disorders. However, only now are researchers starting to understand its importance. Both these articles could be used to demonstrate the ground-breaking research going on in Australia right now. It would be best suited to Biological sciences for years 8 and 10 as well as senior sciences when discussing body systems and genetics (particularly mutations).
