Clinical and Basic Neurogastroenterology and Motility is a state-of-the-art, lucidly written, generously illustrated, landmark publication that comprehensively addresses the underlying mechanisms and management of common adult and pediatric motility disorders. These problems affect 50% of the population and include conditions such as dysphagia. Section II has been renamed "Neural Gastroenterology and Motility" and has been expanded from seven chapters with rather classic titles to more than twenty chapters encompassing not only the movement of the various parts of the digestive tract but also cell physiology, neural regulation, stress, and the regulation of food intake. Historical note and terminology. Neurogastroenterology is defined as neurology of the gastrointestinal tract, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas and encompasses control of digestion through the enteric nervous system, the central nervous system, and integrative centers in sympathetic ganglia (Furness ).Neurogastroenterology has evolved as a subspecialty of gastroenterology. His research investigates cellular mechanisms of pacemaker activity and neural control of GI motility. For example, Sanders’ research group was the first to isolate and demonstrate the functions and mechanisms of a special class of pacemaker cells that drive motility in organs of the GI .

Abstract. Metoclopramide is a dopamine antagonist which has been used for many years in the clinic as an anti-emetic and to increase the motility of the stomach and upper small intestine 1,r, the mechanisms by which metoclopramide increases gastrointestinal motility are not clearly understood, and may even be unrelated to dopamine antagonism.
