Aventinus Foundation buys Le Temps and Heidi.news: what this means for Geneva Solutions Geneva Solutions was born within Heidi.news and maintains a privileged relationship with its team. However, it is financed by a foundation that is not impacted by the acquisition and will therefore remain completely independent.

Butterflies in the belly when you are in love! Or knots in the stomach when having to pass an exam. Seems like the brain and the gut are connected – at least metaphorically. But over the last few years, more and more studies show that what happens in the brain physiologically (including diseases like Alzheimer's or Parkinson's) could be linked to the community of millions of bacteria living in the gut, called the microbiome.

New research published in Nature indicates that, in mice, the gut might also do its part for good in protecting the brain by training the immune system. Mens sana in corpore sano - more true than ever.
