Next up, we have a new brain imaging study that reveals sex-specific differences in subjective responses to a palatable meal at thalamic and insular connectivity level in healthy individuals. You will also come across a new study that disentangles associations between human host genotype and gut microbiome variation in three distinct cohorts, paving the way for causal inference analyses in the field.
Finally, you will encounter a new study that finds that housing conditions are a major factor within the Irish Traveller ethnic minority, determining both gut microbiome make-up and its link with metabolic diseases.
