Functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGD) are highly prevalent worldwide. Recent research demonstrates that complex and interacting biological and behavioral mechanisms contribute particularly to the pathogenesis of irritable bowel syndrome and functional dyspepsia. Dysregulation of the enteral, neuroenteric, visceral-autonomic, and central nervous systems are important biological contributors, whereas the psychological state of a patient may evidently modulate aspects related to biological stress reactivity and somatic perception both playing a role in the clinical manifestation of FGD. Our overview clearly shows that an interdisciplinary perspective of the pathogenesis of FGD may best serve clinicians and patients.
