s c N t v s With over a decade of neuroimaging research of the brain– gut axis behind us, we find ourselves at a convergence of emergent technology and pathophysiologic understanding. Although biomarkers of functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs) remain elusive, we have made great progress in our understanding of the complex interrelationships of gastrointestinal sensation, motility, and immune function within the framework of the biopsychosocial model that we believe characterizes FGIDs… CONTINUE READING
