Abstract: Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder of gut-brain interaction defined by recurrent and longstanding abdominal pain and disturbed bowel habits. This thesis aims to deepen the knowledge about aberrant visceral sensory processing seen in a large group of patients with IBS, with particular focus on central mechanisms. The methods used were rectal balloon distensions using a barostat to evaluate rectal sensitivity, structural magnetic resonance imaging of the brain to investigate regio... more
