According to new research published recently in the journal eLife, scientists with New York City’s Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai propose that altering the gut bacteria has a direct impact on the myelin in the body. Myelin is an insulating layer, or sheath, that forms around nerves, including those in the brain and spinal cord. It allows electrical impulses to transmit quickly and efficiently along the nerve cells. If myelin is damaged, neural communication is impaired and these impulses slow down. This type of damage results in diseases such as multiple sclerosis and mental illness.
In the study, facilitated by NYC’s Icahn School of Medicine, it showed that when the unhealthy gut flora taken from depressed mice was transferred into the healthy mice, there where changes to the myelin sheath of the healthy mice. These mice even began to “engage in social avoidance behaviors” that are similar to depression.
