Enteric neurons for functional applications in health care

Enteric neurons for functional applications in health care

In the intestine, gut distension and nutrients are detected by mechanoreceptors and chemoreceptors, respectively. The activation of these receptors sends an afferent nervous message to the hypothalamus in the brain. In turn, the hypothalamus controls the glucose entry in tissues, and thus glycemia.

The enteric nervous system is our second brain

  The enteric nervous system (ENS), referred to as the “second brain,” is an extensive network of different cell types located along the digestive tract. It consists in enteric neurons, enteric glial cells and interstitial cells of Cajal. This network of cells is...
