This regulates the activity of smooth muscle, cardiac muscle and glands
Autonomic sensory neurons, Integrating Centers in the CNS and Autonomic motor neurons
Structurally the ANS includes what three parts?
Without conscious control
Does the ANS operate with or without conscious control?
Hypothalamus and Medulla Oblongata
The ANS is regulated by which two parts of the brain?
Limbic System and other regions of the cerebrum
The hypothalamus and medulla oblongata receive input from where?
Somatic nervous system
1. This system's sensory neurons receive input from receptors of the special senses that are perceived consciously 2. This system's motor neurons innervate skeletal muscle to produce conscious, voluntary movement. The effect is always excitation
Autonomic nervous system
1. This system's sensory neurons are associated with interoceptors in viscera. These activities usually lie beyond conscious control and not consciously perceived. 2. Motor Neurons regulate visceral activities by either increasing (exciting) or decreasing (inhibiting) ongoing activities of cardiac muscle, smooth muscle or glands. Can not be consciously altered or suppressed.
This efferent neuron synapses on skeletal muscles
Two efferent neurons of this type synapse from CNS to glanglion, and then glanglion to visceral effector.
