Neuroanatomy consists of the central nervous system which has brain, spinal cord and the peripheral nervous system which consist of sensory nerves and the sensory organs. Three different types of neurons are found. They are afferent neurons, Efferent neurons and interneurons. Autonomic nervous system is a kind of peripheral nervous system which has two sub classes like sympathetic and parasympathetic. Enteric nervous system (ENS) which is a kind of Autonomic nervous system which is responsible for the digestive organs. ENS works independent of CNS and it also works without any inputs from outside. ENS is also called as brain of the gut or the body’s second brain. It has three specific functions like sensory input, integration and the motor output.
