Morphological study of guinea pig esophagus suggests that the anatomy and innervation are essentially similar to those of the human esophagus. The rami esophagi nervi vagi esophagus preparation provides an isolated tissue where at least 3 different types of cholinergic transmission can be studied; neuromuscular, ganglionic and parasympathetic postganglionic nerve smooth muscle transmission.
