1 Motor neuron (large, myelinated) from CNS
Neurotransmitter = ACh
Effector = skeletal muscle
2 Motor neuron efferent pathway
Preganglionic neuron (myelinated)
Synapse at ganglia (outside CNS)
Neurotransmitter = ACh, NE
Effectors = Smooth muscle, cardiac muscle, glands
Controls internal environment
Most effectors innervated by fibers from both
Stimulate vs. Inhibit Example: Heart rate symp.- increases parasym. - decreases
Example: Both must participate in controlling external genitalia
