Bi-directional communication between the central nervous system and the enteric nervous system occurs in both healthy and diseased individuals. Disturbances of neural control of the gastrointestinal tract can affect modulation of motility, secretion, and immune function as well as perception and emotional responses to visceral events. Nutritional strategies and toxin reduction may help address the growing concerns of environmentally induced neurological autoimmune disorders.-- Source other than Library of Congress.
