An article by Jane Foster, an assistant professor of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences, has been identified as one of the most cited by the journal Trends in Neurosciences.

The paper entitled, "Gut–brain axis: how the microbiome influences anxiety and depression," published in May 2013, was one of the most downloaded articles from the journal in the last 90 days.

In her review, Foster suggested that gut microbiota are an important player in how the body influences the brain, contribute to normal healthy homeostasis, and influence risk of disease, including anxiety and mood disorders.
