Abstract

The gastrointestinal tract is designed to digest and absorb ingested nutrients. Appropriate digestion requires the provision of an appropriate milieu for the functioning of secreted enzymes and the co-ordinated movement of digested materials through the length of the gut. Thus motility and secretion need to be interlinked and co-ordinated (Greenwood and Davison, 1987). How this is brought about is still a matter of debate.
