These neurons may be either excitatory or inhibitory. The excitatory neurotransmitter is acetylcholine and, in vivo, all spontaneous colonic contractile activity can be inhibited with atropine. There is some evidence that glutamate may also act as an excitatory neurotransmitter, much as what has been described within the central nervous system. The precise identification of the inhibitory neurotransmitter is more controversial. These nonadrenergic noncholinergic (NANC) neurons have several putative inhibitory neurotransmitters.
