    The gut microbiome from patients with schizophrenia modulates the glutamate-glutamine-GABA cycle and schizophrenia-relevant behaviors in mice (2019), Peng Zheng et al

    Abstract:
    Do we know if anyone has tried transferring faecal samples from ME patients to mice yet?

    Interesting: so by transplanting fecal matter from schizophrenia patients to mice, the mice showed changes in behavior and neurotransmitters in the brain?

    When I was 5, I spit into my big sister's cup once and she definitely showed changes in behavior - she kicked the crap out of me and ratted me out to my Dad. Is that similar?

    It does seem to touch on all the salient points: human gut microbiome, abnormal behavior, rodents and poop.

    If medicine discovers schizophrenia has an organic cause, then finds appropriate treatment, that would be wonderful. But think about all those who have gone before and suffered. Suffered with their illness, and suffered at the hands of psychiatry. Another community that has paid very dearly.
