Abstract Submission Deadline 31 March 2023
Manuscript Submission Deadline 31 May 2023

The importance of the gut-brain axis in maintaining homeostasis has attracted much attention in recent years. Moreover, gut microbiota, a key regulator of the gut-brain axis, have been largely investigated during the past decades. The gut microbiota consists of over 10 trillion microbes sensitive to environmental variations, such as temperature, photoperiods, and diet composition. They are closely related to each life stage and reproductive status, and their metabolites can directly or indirectly affect host energy homeostatic systems. Alterations in the gut-brain axis can alter immune, metabolic, and nervous systems through dynamic bidirectional communication along the ‘gut–brain axis’.

Although gut microbiota play important roles in many physiological functions related to energy balance, including their involvement in health, behavior, seasonal energy variations, postnatal development, and reproduction, the understanding of gut-brain-microbiota is still limited. Therefore, this Research Topic welcomes the submission of original articles and reviews related to the topic of energy balance and gut-brain-microbiota axis, in humans as well as in wild, domestic, and laboratory animals. Areas to be covered in this article collection may include, but are not limited to the following subtopics:
• Gut-brain microbiota and brain health and function;
• Advances in gut-brain microbiota and energy balance during reproduction;
• Advances in gut microbiota and macro-nutrients (fiber, fat and protein contents in diet);
• Gut-brain microbiota and postnatal development in thermoregulation;
• Advances in gut-brain microbiota and energy balance in athletes;
• Any topics related to energy balance and gut microbiota.

Keywords: microbiome, physiology, energy balance


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
