Summary "This monograph presents a basis for the classification of human enteric neurons by specifying and extending earlier concepts of different authors in various mammalian species. Among other aspects, the different definitions of type I neurons given by Dogiel and Stach are emphasized and the need for more precise morphological criteria is pointed out in order to deduce from the morphology of human "type I" neurons their possible functions. Furthermore, identification of putative intrinsic primary afferent neurons in human intestine is at present only possible on the basis of their morphology, i.e. they are, in contrast to other neurons, multiaxonal, non-dendritic type II neurons."--Jacket.
