This week on the On Your Mind Neuoscience Podcast:

Liam is joined by McMaster graduate students Shawna Thompson (@mostlymicroglia) and Aadil Bharwani (@brainymicrobes), to debrief on SFN15, talk about the reproducibility project, recent successes and troubles at 23andMe, and genetic dating services.

In this week’s paper we bring together the worlds of microglia and gut microbiota. We know the bacteria in the gut are important for healthy immune response but Erny et al. show that this is also true for microglia, the immune cells of the brain.
