Advances in understanding the pathophysiological role of neurotransmitters and neurotransmitter receptors that are expressed by neurons of the intrinsic circuits of the intestine will aid the selection of new drug targets for therapeutic compounds. The major components of the intrinsic circuits for motility, secretion and blood flow control in the small and large intestines have been identified in recent years, although the intrinsic circuits in the stomach are still not adequately determined… CONTINUE READING
