#international_vision, Dubai United Arab Emirates:- The journal "Pance" published the results of a recent study conducted by researchers at Michigan State University in the United States, which included an interesting fact about the enteric nervous system in the human intestine.

Scientists revealed that the intestine is considered the "second brain" in the human body, and it can help treat the colon.

According to the study, the enteric nervous system is remarkably independent, and the intestine can perform many of its usual duties even if it is somehow separated from the central nervous system.

Scientists indicate that the number of specialized nervous system cells, that is, neurons and glia, found in the human intestine, is approximately the same as the number in the cat's brain, according to "Sky News".

"Most people don't know that there are so many neurons in their gut," says Brian Gulbransen, a Michigan State University Foundation professor in the Department of Physiology at the College of Natural Sciences.

"This discovery is the second brain in our gut, the vast network of neurons and glia that line our intestines," Gulbransen adds.
