Functional gastrointestinal disorders such as functional dyspepsia and irritable bowel syndrome are very common and show considerable alterations in gut-brain signaling. This has recently be extended by the gut microbiome and therefore also referred as microbiome-gut-brain axis.
The importance of these alterations has been taken into consideration in the new Rome IV criteria summarizing the disorders of the gut-brain interaction. The present Research Topic will highlight new developments :
– in the pathophysiology of functional gastrointestinal disorders such as inflammatory and microbiotic changes
– in the – still challenging – treatment of these conditions.
We are calling authors to submit the latest innovative basic as well as clinical research examining any aspect of Neurogastroenterology. Original studies, review or theoretical papers on animal models, stress, microbiome, inflammation, eating disorders, drug treatments, psychotherapy and other related topics are welcomed.
