The research behind a song about how Victorians saw the conversation between the gut and mood, featuring an interview with researcher Dr Emilie Taylor-Brown at the University of Oxford
We often use language to describe emotions with words related to food, and you often hear people linking mood with food, but getting hangry is far from a modern thing; Victorians had already made these connections. This interview explores this gut:brain conversation from the perspective of Victorian literature. The song was written by Jonny Berliner in collaboration with Dr Emilie Taylor-Brown who works in the English Faculty at the University of Oxford, as part of the 'Diseases of Modern Life' project.
