Notes


- L. reuteri produces a metabolite that activates the vagus nerve to promote oxytocin, the cuddle hormone.This hormone then turns on the brain reward center for social behavior. Impeding the message at any point along this relay from bacteria to metabolite to vagus nerve to oxytocin receptors impairs the animals sociability [21111274]
