Title:
Reticular groove and reticulum are innervated by myenteric neurons with different neurochemical codes. 
Abstract:
The reticulum and the reticular groove are functional distinct compartments within the ovine forestomach. While the reticulum takes part in various motor functions, such as mixing, retaining, and rejecting the forestomach ingesta, the reticular groove serves mainly as a bypass between the esophagus and the abomasum. To accomplish these different tasks, the compartments develop specific motility patterns that are controlled by intrinsic neural circuits. In this study the intrinsic innervation b...    »
