Abstract

Irritable bowel syndrome(IBS) is functional disorder that is characterized by abdominal pain and changes in stool habits, and possibly related to abnormal brain-gut communication. Recent studies using brain imaging suggest the brain functions of IBS patients may be possibly different from that of control. We, in this article, review the recent knowledge regarding this point.
