Enteric nervous system
The enteric nervous system is an interdependent part of the autonomic nervous system. Despite its many interactions with other parts of the ANS, it can be regarded as a nerval body of its own. Its functioning is still subject to research in neurogastroenterology. It has as many as 1 bilion neurons, one one hundredth of the number of neurons in the brain.
