Which Layer Of The Alimentary Canal Is Responsible For Segmentation And Peristalsis?

The muscularis externa is the layer that contracts and moves food along your GI tract. It consists of two separate parts, an inner circular contractile muscle called “the muscluse-like substance” (like a doughnut) which churns together with digestive enzymes down into us as we digest our food through peristalsis waves in wave-like motions throughout out intestines every day.
