Your gut brain doesn't share its supply of serotonin with your cranial brain, but it does influence the cranial brain by stimulating the vagus nerve. This nerve descends from cranial brainstem through the neck to the abdomen, allowing for two-way talk between the gut & cranial brains.The gut is the chatty one, sending up 9 nerve impulses for every 1 it receives in return. Even with all this checking in, the enteric nervous system in the gut can operate largely independently of the cranial…

The brain communicates with our body through the nerves in the nervous system and by using hormones and neurotransmitters.      There are two systems that control voluntary actions like walking or running and involuntary actions like digestion and the beating of the heart.      The Central Nervous system is responsible for voluntary actions and the Autonomic Nervous System is responsible for involuntary actions.  The ANS is broken down into to parts the sympathetic fight or flight system and…

The Brain in Your Gut: The digestive system possesses its own localized nervous system, referred to as the enteric nervous system. It’s the “mini-brain” located in your gut. In this mini-nervous system, neurotransmitters are released, which can relay, amplify and modulate different signals between cells of the body.
