14. The Autonomic Nervous System

ANS divisions The autonomic nervous system is divided into the sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions. The two divisions often innervate the same effectors, but they generally have opposing effects.

The Autonomic Nervous System and Visceral Reflexes

Dual Innervation •Most of the viscera receive nerve fibers from both the sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions and thus are said to have dual innervation-divisions can either be • antagonistic -when effects oppose each other-ex: sympatheticsspeeds up heart while parasympatheticsslow down the heart ...

Yoga and the Autonomic Nervous System: Re-Educating the Mind

Two Divisions of the ANS The ANS has two divisions: the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS). The sympathetic nervous system is a system for short-term survival.

Cardiac autonomic balance versus cardiac regulatory capacity

High parasympathetic activity is generally considered to reflect a positive health state or reduced health risk (Kleigeretal., 2005; Malik, 1996; Masietal., 2007; Porges, 2007; Thayer&Sternberg, 2006), whereas high sympathetic ac-tivitycanbea clear risk factor (Airaksinen, 1999; Billman, 2006a, ...

The Autonomic Nervous System

The neurotransmitter also may vary with the parasympathetic divisionmostly using acetylcholine at both pre and postganglionicfibers, while the sympathetic division utilizes mostlynorepinephrineat the postganglionic fibers.

12 34 Dual Innervation & Opposite Effects Many examples occur for both sympathetic & parasympathetic systems innervating the same organ USUALLY when this occurs one will excite while the other inhibits (not always the case) This allows ANS to act as a regulator to increase or decrease activity of an organ ...

The degree to which the parasympathetic nervous system is effective during deep hibernation and arousal from hibernation is a contested issue. One theory asserts that deep hibernation in the ground squirrel Spermophilus ( Citellus ) lateralis is maintained through active parasympathetic ...
