Gastrointestinal motility: An academic and research perspective

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review

3 Scopus citations


While, in the past, gastrointestinal motility may have been viewed as a narrow and restricted field, confined to the study of twitches in muscle baths and squiggles on smoke drums, it has, of late and belatedly, entered into the mainstream of gastroenterology and medicine. As a consequence, this field, now more correctly and appropriately described as neurogastroenterology, concerns itself with a vast spectrum of clinical disorders of varying pathophysiology, presentation and management. Never before has this area offered so many opportunities to the budding academician and researcher.
