- Gastroileal reflex is one of the ways in which gastric motility influences intestinal motility
- When there is vigorous gastric peristalsis of increased secretion, it stimulates peristalsis in the ileum
- This causes the ileal contents to be pushed into the colon, in turn stimulating colonic peristalsis and an urge to defecate
- Another example of gastric motility influencing intestinal motility is Migratory myoelectric complex
