Think parasites can do the same to us?
Cat poop parasite may alter human brains to reduce fear, study finds

The bravery needed to start that business might be buried in a cat's litter box. A parasite found in cat feces may alter human minds to make us less fearful, a new study has found.

While more research is needed, they did find correlations: People at entrepreneurial events who carried the parasite were nearly twice as likely as other attendees to have started their own businesses, while college students who picked up the bug were 1.4 times more likely to major in business.

The study, lead by associate professor Stefanie Johnson, was published Wednesday in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B.

Chemically. The gut also connects with the brain through chemicals like hormones and neurotransmitters that send messages. The chemical messages that pass between the gut and the brain can be affected by the bacteria, viruses, and fungi that live in the gut called the “gut microbiome.”
