The nerves of the [[small intestines]] are derived from the [[Nerve plexus|plexuses]] of [[parasympathetic]] nerves around the [[superior mesenteric artery]]. From this source they run to the myenteric plexus ([[Auerbach's plexus]]) of nerves and ganglia situated between the circular and longitudinal muscular fibers from which the nervous branches are distributed to the muscular coats of the intestine. From this a secondary plexus, the '''plexus of the submucosa''' ('''Meissner's plexus''', '''Submucous plexus''', '''submucosal plexus''') is derived, and is formed by branches which have perforated the circular muscular fibers. This plexus lies in the submucous coat of the intestine; it also contains ganglia from which nerve fibers pass to the [[muscularis mucosae]] and to the mucous membrane. The nerve bundles of the submucous plexus are finer than those of the myenteric plexus.

Overview

The nerves of the small intestines are derived from the plexuses of parasympathetic nerves around the superior mesenteric artery. From this source they run to the myenteric plexus (Auerbach's plexus) of nerves and ganglia situated between the circular and longitudinal muscular fibers from which the nervous branches are distributed to the muscular coats of the intestine. From this a secondary plexus, the plexus of the submucosa (Meissner's plexus, Submucous plexus, submucosal plexus) is derived, and is formed by branches which have perforated the circular muscular fibers. This plexus lies in the submucous coat of the intestine; it also contains ganglia from which nerve fibers pass to the muscularis mucosae and to the mucous membrane. The nerve bundles of the submucous plexus are finer than those of the myenteric plexus.
