Abstract: The enteric nervous system consists of two ganglionated neural networks within the gut wall that contain as many neurons as the spinal cord. Connections exist between the neurons in these two networks, enabling motility and secretion to be coordinated. It is becoming increasingly apparent that Ca(2+) movements across the cell membrane and between various intracellular compartments play a major role in the regulation of neuronal excitability and neurotransmitter release.
