Gérard Eberl: “Mutual regulation of microbiota, brain and immune system”
Gérard Eberl; Microenvironment & Immunity Unit Institut Pasteur, Paris, France
Abstract: The immune system and the nervous system express a large and overlapping set of receptors to sense the milieu intérieur and the environment. The two systems interact at many levels to balance the energy budget and regulate each other. I will show you how the microbiota provides information to the brain to manage the energy budget et adapt behavior in the face of potential danger, and how the brain senses the environment to regulate immune responses.
