Titel:
Control of gastrointestinal motility by the "gut brain"--the enteric nervous system. 
Abstract:
The enteric nervous system (ENS) as the "brain of the gut" is pivotal for normal muscle activity in the gut. Neuronal circuits within the ENS are designed to control gut motility independent of central inputs. To fulfill this task the ENS contains all necessary elements for coding mechanical and chemical stimuli, interneuronal communication and efferent output to the muscle. This review provides a summary of the ENS circuits that control muscle activity, the main transmitters and neuromodulato...    »
