    Abnormal motor patterns are implicated in many motility disorders. However, for many regions of the gut, our knowledge of normal and abnormal motility behaviors and mechanisms remains incomplete. There have been many recent advances in the development of techniques to increase our knowledge of gastrointestinal motility, some readily available while others remain confined to research centers. This review highlights a range of these recent developments and examines their potential to help diagnose and guide treatment for motility disorders.
