Lateral horns are absent in the sacral region of the spinal cord.
Most autonomic body functions occur without our awareness or attention.
The parasympathetic division exerts short-lived, highly localized control over its effectors.
The sympathetic trunk extends only from the thorax to the lumbar region, where the sympathetic fibers arise.
Transmission through the autonomic motor system is faster than through the somatic motor system.
Usually, the parasympathetic and sympathetic stimulation of a target organ oppose each other, but they sometimes have cooperative effects.
As we age, the efficiency of the autonomic nervous system decreases.
Meditation is generally very relaxing because it stimulates sympathetic effectors.
Both alpha and beta adrenergic receptors have several subclasses.
The main integration center of the ANS is the cerebral cortex.
The parasympathetic nervous system has little or no effect on blood vessels
One of the major differences between the somatic and visceral motor divisions is the presence of two neurons in the visceral pathway.
The preganglionic neuron in the sympathetic division is generally shorter than the preganglionic neuron in the parasympathetic division.
