does anybody know? i can't seem to find it online anywhere. is the mechanism of this phernic nerve a little unique compared to nerves of autonomic and somatic nervous systems? and if so, how?

i would guess that its probably Ach.

again, this is probably a dumb question, but i'm just curious to know the answer.

The diaphragm is a skeletal muscle. Therefore it's neuromuscular junction is activated by Acetyl Choline.
