Abstract: A model based on the topology of neurones in the enteric nervous system has been developed to understand the nature of intestinal motor activity. The model is based on identical modules of neurones and circular muscle, whose connections and projections were derived from microanatomical studies carried out on the small intestine of the guinea-pig. This neuro-topological model can demonstrate some essential properties of intestinal motor activity.
