ICCs in intestinal tissue. The model group (a) shows that the number of ICCs and the synapses of ICCs are low, and the network integrity is damaged. The AP group (b) shows that the number of ICCs and the synapses of ICCs are significantly increased. ICCs are connected to each other by synapses and form network structure. The sham-AP group (c) shows that the number of ICCs and the synapses of ICCs are low, and the network integrity is damaged.
