Thought you were ruled  by your head? Your gut might have something to say about that!

It is becoming increasingly evident that bidirectional signalling exists between the gastrointestinal tract and the brain, often involving the gut microbiota. A new collection on the gut-brain axis brings together Research, Reviews, Highlights and News from across the Nature Research journals and presents a selection of articles covering key aspects of the gut–brain axis including immune, neuroendocrine and neural factors.

The content brought together in this collection has been published within the past 2 years in Nature Reviews Gastroenterology & Hepatology, Nature, Nature Communications, Nature Immunology, Nature Medicine, Nature Microbiology, Nature Neuroscience, Nature Outlook, Nature Reviews Disease Primers, Nature Reviews Endocrinology, Nature Reviews Microbiology, Nature Reviews Neurology, Nature Reviews Neuroscience, Nature Reviews Urology and Scientific Reports.

Access the collection content here (selected content is FREE for 6 months until 11th July 2018!):

Katrina Ray

Chief Editor, Nature Reviews Gastroenterology & Hepatology

I'm the Chief Editor for Nature Reviews Gastroenterology & Hepatology, where I oversee the publication of a range of articles including Research Highlights, News & Views, Reviews, Perspectives and Consensus Statements across the field of gastroenterology and hepatology. I have always had a love of all things microbiology, in particular focusing on clinical microbiology, gastrointestinal infections and the gut microbiota in my current role. Before joining the Nature Reviews journals in 2010, I studied for a BSc in Microbiology at the University of Manchester and did a summer studentship on virology at the University of Leeds. Next, as part of the EIMID programme, I worked at the Institut Pasteur (Philippe Sansonetti group), Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology (Arturo Zychlinsky group) and Karolinska Institutet (Birgitta Henriques–Normark group) before carrying out a PhD studying Shigella flexneri at Imperial College London under the supervision of Prof. Christoph Tang.
