This page covers biological details of component Stomach. Region is part of aHuman target integrated biological model.

  • Top-down path to region: Target -> Human Effectors (aHumanEffectors) -> Stomach (TARGET.TEA.STOMACH) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: effector
  • Brain area: Effector Area
  • Role: targeteffector
  • Function: Digestion




Component items:

  • Stomach sensory data (stomach-sensory-data)
    • Stomach - stomach nutrition sensor (stomach-nutrition-sensor -> LPC.PN.SG.LDRG): sense independently to tongue and oral taste receptors glucose, carbohydrates proteins, and fats
  • Stomach gastrointestinal tract (stomach-gastrointestinal-tract)
  • Stomach extractors (stomach-extractors)
    • Stomach - spleen (spleen -> LPC.PN.SG.NOD): red pulp - blood filter, removes old red blood cells, holds a reserve of blood, recycles iron; white pulp - synthesizes antibodies in its white pulp and removes antibody-coated bacteria and antibody-coated blood cells by way of blood and lymph node circulation
    • Stomach - kidney (kidney -> LPC.PN.SG.NOD): regulating acid-base balance, electrolyte concentrations, extracellular fluid volume, blood pressure, filter to urine
