Neurogastroenterology is a research area in the field of gastroenterology which regards interactions of the central nervous system (brain) and the gut - the so-called brain-gut axis. Important basic research focuses upon upward (sensory) and downward (motor and regulatory) nerval connections and upon endocrine influences on gut function. Another area is the enteric nervous system in itself. Clinical research deals mainly with motility disorders and functional bowel disorders (e.g. irritable bowel syndrome and functional dyspepsia).
