Your mind. Your microbes

Stunning displays explore new revelations; that your gut can talk directly to your mind and body via trillions of microorganisms.  Meet your helpful gut microbes. Walk amongst these beautiful, dynamic entities in the gut tunnel. How do they affect your thoughts, behaviour and body? How can you love them so they will love you back? Are miraculous poo transplants the future cure-all?
