Gastrointestinal Functions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Neurohormonal mechanisms are critically important for the integration of gastrointestinal functions. The gastrointestinal functions include the absorption of water and electrolytes, the storage and transport of intraluminal contents aborally, the salvage of some nutrients after bacterial metabolism of carbohydrate that is not absorbed in the small intestine, and ultimately the excretion of residue resulting from digestion. Understanding the physiological principles and control of gastrointestinal motor, secretory, and sensory functions in health provides the basis for understanding disease and indicates the potential approaches for pharmacological modulation of those functions.
