Graphic Abstract: Functional Neuroimaging in IBS

In a study Nisticò et al. reviewed literature on functional neuroimaging in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) to find out whether there are similarities between those seen in IBS and other functional disorders, especially functional movement disorders (FMD). The study revealed abnormal activation and functional connectivity of brain areas of IBS patients which coincide with examinations of FMD patients. Nisticò et al. hypothesize that various functional disturbances may share a common pathophysiology.


ESNM inside  
Neurogastroenterology is an underestimated but fascinating discipline for medical doctors, psychologists, dieticians, pharmacologists or scientists. With our YouTube format “ESNM inside” we want to reach out to young gastroenterologists and medics and raise their interest by talking to experts on the wide field of "neurogastro" and letting them introduce themselves and their work. In the latest episode of “ESNM inside” you get to know Jean-Marc Sabaté from Hôpital Avicenne (APHP) in Paris and his work and his thoughts on the importance of neurogastroenterological research. Follow the link to get to our official YouTube channel. Here you can find previous webinars and presentations and all episodes of “ESNM inside” within the “ESNM inside” playlist.
