The article comments on the independent component analysis (ICA) of understanding the abnormalities of brain-gut signalling. The ICA provides a different snapshot on the brain-gut signalling and adding another piece on the panoramic picture of the gastrointestinal sensory processing. In addition, the technique has been concluded to be at its best when used in conjunction with other neuroscience tools.
