Direct neuronal interactions between the duodenum and the sphincter of Oddi.

Abstract

The sphincter of Oddi (SO) is a complex structure that must function in coordination with the motor activities of the gallbladder and the duodenum. It is now clear that a neural circuit exists between the duodenum and the SO, and it is likely that this network is largely responsible for the regulation of SO motility. Recent studies have demonstrated that… (More)
