The autonomic nervous system is made up of pathways of neurons that control various organ systems inside the body, using many diverse chemicals and signals to maintain homeostasis. It divides into the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems. The sympathetic component is better known as “fight or flight” and the parasympathetic component as “rest and digest.”Author: Tyler LeBouef, Lacey Whited.   J ; 38 (6) Book Reviews. Essentials of Autonomic Function. The Autonomic Nervous System Fundamental Concepts from Anatomy, Physiology, Pharmacology and Neuroscience for Students and Professionals in the Health Author: Barry E. Levin. The Primer on the Autonomic Nervous System presents, in a readable and accessible format, key information about how the autonomic nervous system controls the body, particularly in response to stress. It represents the largest collection of world-wide autonomic nervous system authorities ever assembled in one book. It is especially suitable for students, scientists and physicians seeking key 5/5(5). Autonomic Nervous System: Physiology and Pharmacology Loreta Grecu Key Points The autonomic nervous system (ANS) includes that part of the central and peripheral nervous system concerned with involuntary regulation of cardiac muscle, smooth muscle, glandular and visceral functions. The sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems (SNS, PNS) affect cardiac pump function in .

Despite the physiological relevance of the ANS, most neuroscience textbooks offer very limited coverage of this portion of the nervous system. This review article provides both historical and current information about the anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology of Cited by: somatic nerves that innervate voluntary skeletal muscle are not part of the autonomic system, but will be discussed in the final lecture. The autonomic nervous system consists of two large divisions (Figure 1): ∑ sympathetic (thoracolumbar) outflow, and ∑ parasympathetic (craniosacral) outflow. Overview of the Anatomy, Physiology, and Pharmacology of the Autonomic Nervous System. Comprised of the sympathetic nervous system, parasympathetic nervous system, and enteric nervous system, the autonomic nervous system (ANS) provides the neural control of all parts of the body except for skeletal muscles. be discussed. Autonomic Nervous System – Basic and Clinical Aspects is a comprehensive text intended for medical students and health professionals who are interested in a deeper approach to this important part of the nervous system/5(2).

  This manuscript discusses the physiology of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The following topics are presented: regulation of activity; efferent pathways; sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions; neurotransmitters, their receptors and the termination of their activity; functions of the ANS; and the adrenal by:   Physiology. Specific functional circuits for: blood pressure, heart, thermoregulation, genitourinary, gastrointestinal and effectors of the eyes. Neurotransmission: autonomic ganglia, sympathetic and parasympathetic neurotransmission. Autonomic pharmacology: drugs affecting adrenergic and cholinergic function. Adverse effects of drugs on ANS Cited by: 1. This overview of autonomic pharmacology describes the anatomy, physiology and pharmacology of the autonomic involuntary nervous system. Covering the diverse group of drugs acting on the autonomous nervous system, their actions are reviewed together with their clinical uses, side effects, interactions and subcellular mechanisms of action.
