About

Progresses in the understanding of human brain-gut interactions have progressed rapidly due to the advent of neuroimaging techniques, making it possible to not only study the structure and function of the brain, but also to characterize signaling system underlying brain function. This Working Team, formed after the completion of the Rome III, was charged with the task of reviewing available literature on standards for brain imaging assessment in medicine and establishing recommendations for the conduct of brain imaging studies in the functional GI disorders.
