Motor innervation is provided by a network of small ganglia connected by nerves (plexus) located between the muscle layers known as Auerbach's (or myenteric) plexus. It is found in the esophagus, stomach, and intestines.
Parasympathetic ganglia of Auerbach's plexus are very small and usually contain less than five nerve cell bodies.
Ganglion Cells - large, nerve cell bodies with prominent nuclei and nucleoli with a basophilic cytoplasm. Unlike sympathetic ganglia, nuclei are eccentrically located within the cells.
