Hiya

it's asking you to talk about each of the layers of the digestive tract, ie those tissues you'd see if you transected across the intestine since each of the layers have a different role. Some people do this from an 'outside in' method, starting with the outermost layer and working in until they reach the lumen or the hollow space within the intestine. It's also useful to consider how the layers differ from oesophagus, to stomach, to small intestine to large intestine as well

I hope this helps

Im still really stuck on the question and its stressing me out really want to get it done so i ca complete the last 3 assignments in my deadline 31.10.14.

I have a diagram of the inside off the gut wall, it is already labled, am i right in thinking i discuss the four layers
Lumen, Mucosa, Submaccosa, Serosa.
It goes on as the whole diagram is labled.

Can anyone help me with simplifying the question and letting me know if im on the right tract.

Thank you :)

That's the core of it, and the roles played by the different layers of the gut wall particularly when it comes to their location within the gastro intestinal tract

I hope this helps
