@m3g4n – As a medical student, let me tell you that gastric emptying can occur when the myenteric plexus is malfunctioning. For future readers, gastric emptying is the process of emptying the contents of the stomach into the next section of the digestive tract.
The myenteric plexus sits between the two muscle layers that line your entire digestive tract. It’s rare for the entire myenteric plexus to malfunction, so gastric emptying is often left unaffected. However, disorders that affect the nerves and muscles that contribute to gastric emptying can in fact stop the process altogether.
