Abstract  Brain‐gut interaction is considered to be a major factor in the pathophysiology of irritable bowel syndrome. However, only limited information has been provided on the influence of gastrointestinal tract stimulation on the brain. Our aim in this study was to determine the specific regions of the brain that are responsible for visceral perception and emotion provoked by distention of the descending colon in humans. Fifteen healthy males aged 22 ± 1 participated in this study. Using a… Expand
Effects of Preceding Stimulation on Brain Activation in Response to Colonic Distention in Humans
TLDR
By directly comparing different patterns of visceral stimuli, preceding visceral stimuli may affect neural sensitization and/or desensitization in humans, including elevated midbrain, insula, and midcingulate cortex. Expand
Contributions of the Cerebellum to Disturbed Central Processing of Visceral Stimuli in Irritable Bowel Syndrome
TLDR
Signs of anxiety and depression, which are frequently found in chronic pain conditions like IBS, modulate activation during visceral sensory signals not only in cortical and subcortical brain areas but also in the cerebellum. Expand
Brain Activation Associated With Changes in Heart Rate, Heart Rate Variability, and Plasma Catecholamines During Rectal Distention
TLDR
The results suggest that the right insula and the related body mapping regions may form the functional module of sympathetic arousal in response to gut stimulation. Expand
Stress and visceral pain: Focusing on irritable bowel syndrome
TLDR
Brain imaging techniques have enabled us to depict the visceral pain pathway as well as the related emotional circuit, and autonomic nervous system function, the neuroimmune axis, and the brain–gut–microbiota axis show specific profiles in IBS patients. Expand
Classical conditioned response of rectosigmoid motility and regional cerebral activity in humans
  • M. Kanazawa, M. Endo, +4 authors S. Fukudo
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Neurogastroenterology and motility : the official journal of the European Gastrointestinal Motility Society
  • 2005
TLDR
The hypothesis that the rectosigmoid motility becomes conditioned with anticipatory painful somatosensory stimulus and that characteristic brain areas become activated during anticipation is tested. Expand
Correlation between alexithymia and hypersensitivity to visceral stimulation in human
TLDR
The present study demonstrates that alexithymia is associated with hypersensitivity to visceral stimulation, which supports the somatosensory amplification hypothesized in aLexithymics and is important to elucidate the influence of alexithsymia on brain‐gut function, particularly to understand the pathophysiology of FGIDs (functional gastrointestinal disorders). Expand
Cognitive therapy for irritable bowel syndrome is associated with reduced limbic activity, GI symptoms, and anxiety.
TLDR
Changes in neural activity of cortical-limbic regions that subserve hypervigilance and emotion regulation may represent biologically oriented change mechanisms that mediate symptom improvement of CT for IBS. Expand
Relationship between sympathoadrenal and pituitary-adrenal response during colorectal distention in the presence of corticotropin-releasing hormone in patients with irritable bowel syndrome and healthy controls
TLDR
There was a strong correlation between adrenaline and HRV upon CRH injection in controls, but not patients with IBS, and plasma adrenaline levels were shown to be associated with plasma ACTH levels in HCs injected with CRH during distention using structural equation modeling analysis. Expand
Differential Activation in Amygdala and Plasma Noradrenaline during Colorectal Distention by Administration of Corticotropin-Releasing Hormone between Healthy Individuals and Patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome
TLDR
Exogenous CRH differentially sensitizes brain regions of the emotional-arousal circuitry within the visceral pain matrix to colorectal distention and synergetic activation of noradrenergic function in IBS patients and healthy individuals. Expand
Brain activity following esophageal acid infusion using positron emission tomography.
TLDR
Emotion-related brain areas were activated by esophageal acid stimulation, with strong activation of the orbitofrontal cortex found by subtraction analysis of the two second pH 1 infusions, with a significant increase of heartburn symptoms. Expand

Gastric distention correlates with activation of multiple cortical and subcortical regions.
TLDR
Symptomatic gastric distention activates structures implicated in somatic pain processing, supporting the notion of a common cerebral pain network. Expand
Regional cerebral activity in normal and pathological perception of visceral pain.
TLDR
The perception of acute rectal pain is associated with activation of the anterior cingulate cortex in healthy subjects, and patients with IBS show an aberrant brain activation pattern both during noxious rectal distention and during the anticipation ofrectal pain. Expand
Regional cerebral activation in irritable bowel syndrome and control subjects with painful and nonpainful rectal distention.
TLDR
Functional magnetic resonance imaging data suggest heightened pain sensitivity of the brain-gut axis in IBS, with a normal pattern of activation. Expand
Brain-gut response to stress and cholinergic stimulation in irritable bowel syndrome. A preliminary study.
TLDR
The results suggest that patients with IBS have exaggerated responsivity of the gut and the brain to mental stress and cholinergic stimulation, and there is a possibility that these exaggerated responses are related. Expand
A study of the cortical processing of ano-rectal sensation using functional MRI.
TLDR
Anal and rectal sensation resulted in a similar pattern of cortical activation, including areas involved with spatial discrimination, attention and affect, and this explains the greater autonomic responses evoked by visceral sensation in comparison with somatic sensation. Expand
Functional activity mapping of the mesial hemispheric wall during anticipation of pain
TLDR
These findings unravel a complex pattern of brain activity during uncertain anticipation of noxious input, likely related both to changes in the level of arousal and to cognitive modulation of the pain system. Expand
Identification and characterization of cerebral cortical response to esophageal mucosal acid exposure and distention.
BACKGROUND & AIMS Esophageal acid exposure is a common occurrence in healthy individuals and patients with esophagitis. Clinically, perception of this exposure ranges from no perception to severeExpand
Comparison of cortical potentials evoked by mechanical and electrical stimulation of the rectum
TLDR
It is demonstrated that electrical rectal stimulation is a more reliable stimulus for recording CEPs, and the similarity of the morphology and interpeak latencies of the C EPs suggests that both stimuli are activating a similar network of cortical neurones. Expand
Haemodynamic brain responses to acute pain in humans: sensory and attentional networks.
TLDR
Attentional processes could possibly explain part of the variability observed in previous PET reports and should therefore be considered in further studies on pain in both normal subjects and patients with chronic pain. Expand
Identification of human brain loci processing esophageal sensation using positron emission tomography.
TLDR
Esophageal sensation activates bilaterally the insula, primary somatosensory cortex, and operculum, and the right anterior insular cortex and anterior cingulate gyrus process esophagal pain. Expand
