However, little is known about the non-neuronal elements present in close morphological and, presumably, functional relationship with the enteric neurones. Although ‘enteric glial cells’ in gut ganglia and Schwann cells accompanying nerve fibres throughout the gastrointestinal wall can easily be recognized by electron microscopy… CONTINUE READING
