[…] Il sistema nervoso enterico è una curiosità, un residuo che abbiamo conservato dal nostro passato evolutivo. Di certo, non pare qualcosa che possa attirare l’’interesse di tutti, invece dovrebbe. L’’evoluzione è un revisore potente. Le parti del corpo futili o non assolutamente necessarie hanno poche possibilità di farcela a superare le difficoltà della selezione naturale. Tuttavia, un sistema nervoso enterico è stato presente in ciascuno dei nostri predecessori nel corso dei milioni di anni di storia dell’’evoluzione che ci separa dal primo animale dotato di spina dorsale. Quindi, il sistema nervoso enterico deve essere più di una reliquia. Il sistema nervoso enterico è, di fatto, un centro di elaborazione dati moderno e pieno di vita, che ci consente di portare a termine alcuni compiti molto importanti e spiacevoli senza alcuno sforzo mentale.»
