Neurogastroenterology encompasses the study of the brain, the gut, and their interactions with relevance to the understanding and management of gastrointestinal (GI) motility and functional GI disorders. Research focuses on upward (sensory) and downward (motor and regulatory) neural connections, and on endocrine influences on gut function. Another area of research is the enteric nervous system. Clinical research deals mainly with motility disorders and functional bowel disorders (e.g. irritable bowel syndrome and functional dyspepsia) and dysphagia.
A barostat is a frequently used tool in clinical neurogastroenterology research.
