    Fantastic lecture …
    By Soumya B. on 24. May 2016 for Large intestine

    Fantastic lecture, just the 2 questions. When you were saying about the Goblet cells in the wall of the Large Intestine you mentioned they secrete mucous to rehydrate what exactly? Is it the Glands? Also when you said the mesocolon's give the Large Intestine greater mobility what would be the benefit of this greater mobility?
