Main Article Content

Kevin Sun


This article is intended to cover the connection between the brain-gut axis and Parkinson’s Disease (PD). Neurodegenerative diseases are currently a major area of research in neuroscience, and many have sought to uncover the underlying causes behind these disorders. Many scientific studies suspect that gut bacteria are involved in neurological disorders, but no clear role has been defined. A better understanding of how the intestinal microbiota interact with the brain would be a major advance in neuroscience and could lead to the development of important new treatments for diseases that currently lack effective remedies. This work will cover PD and its specific relationship to the brain-gut axis.
