Episodes of depression and anxiety commonly follow the experience of stress, however, not everyone who experiences stress develops a mood disorder. Stress alters the gut microbiota and plausibly this could contribute to stress-related changes in mood. Stress-resilience is influenced by several psychological and biological factors, including the microbiome-gut-brain axis. Most of the reported research has been conducted using animal models.
