Biology - GI Tract

posted by .

In my notes it says that the last 2/3 of the esophagus is controlled by smooth muscle (controlled by ANS and ENS). What is ENS? I'm listening to the lecture the it's something nervous system but I have no idea what the E stands for.

    ENS = enteric nervous system
