Have you ever wondered where the word “gutfeeling” comes from, or understand why stress induces abdominal discomfort. If so, this Master programme may be of interest to you. The programme provides scientific knowledge and competences to understand the complex bidirectional signalling between the gut and the brain. It focuses on in-depth knowledge on how diet and nutrition, the intestinal microbes, the intestine and the brain interact.
