Progress in the study of metabolomics has opened a new door to understanding the relationship between the microbiome and host. Studies in rodents indicate that the bidirectional signaling between the intestine and the brain plays an important role in the regulation of both metabolism and behavior. Metabolic and behavioral phenotyping systems coupled with the ability to trace the utilization of specific nutrients provide ideal platforms for research in this area.
