Here we develop an integrated neuromechanical model of the ENS and assess neurostimulation strategies for enhancing gut motility. The model includes a network of enteric neurons, smooth muscle fibers, and interstitial cells of Cajal, which regulate propulsion of a virtual pellet in a model of gut motility.
