Neurogastroenterology & Motility Descriptors for DDW® 2015

Each summer, the NGM section descriptors are reviewed to optimize scientific relevance and minimize topic overlap. The current list of abstract descriptors is as follows:

  • Anorectal Dysmotility (Including Fecal Incontinence, Dyssynergia and Pelvic Floor Disorders)
  • Brain-Gut Axis (Including Neuroimaging, Vagal Pathways and Neurobiology of Satiety, Obesity and Metabolic Disorders)
  • Constipation and Other Functional Colonic Syndromes
  • Enteric Neurobiology: Cell and Molecular Biology (Including Neurons, Glia, ICC, Smooth Muscle and Stem Cells)
  • Enteric Neurobiology: Pharmacology and Physiology
  • Esophageal Dysmotility
  • Functional Dyspepsia, Nausea and Vomiting
  • Gastroparesis
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Clinical
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Pathophysiology
  • Oropharyngeal Dysmotility
  • Pediatric Functional and Motility Disorders
  • Sensory Neurobiology Including Visceral Nociception/Pain and Neuroimmunology (Neurogenic Inflammation and Interactions with the Microbiome)
  • Small Bowel Motility, Intestinal Disorders and Food Intolerance
