'''Auerbach's plexus''' (or '''myenteric plexus''') provides motor innervation to both layers of the tunica muscularis, having both parasympathetic and sympathetic input, whereas [[Meissner's plexus]] has only parasympathetic fibers and provides secretomotor innervation to the mucosa nearest the lumen of the gut.

It arises from cells in the nucleus ala cinerea, the parasympathetic nucleus of origin for the tenth cranial nerve (vagus), located in the [[medulla oblongata]]. The fibers are carried by both the anterior and posterior vagal nerves. The myenteric plexus is the major nerve supply to the gastrointestinal tract and controls GI tract motility.<ref>Human Anatomy and Physiology, Marieb & Hoehn, seventh edition</ref>
