This page covers biological details of component Parasympathetic Gut Brain. Region is part of aHuman target integrated biological model.

  • Top-down path to region: Peripheral Nervous System -> Parasympathetic Ganglia (PNS.PSYM) -> Body Parasympathetic Ganglia (PN.PSYM.BD) -> Parasympathetic Gut Brain (LAC.PN.PSYM.GUT) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: parasympathetic ganglion
  • Quality: L0
  • Brain area: Lower Brain - Autonomous Control Area (LAC)
  • Area circuit: Lower Digestion Control (LAD)
  • Role: parasympathetic.ganglion
  • Function: Autonomic control of stomach, liver




Component items:

  • Myenteric Ganglion (AVA.PN.PSYM.MTG): Controls gastrointestinal movements
  • Submucosal Gut Ganglion (AVA.PN.PSYM.SGG): Controls gastrointestinal secretion and local blood flow
