Compare And Contrast The Nervous And Endocrine Systems
OK: Central nervous system - brain & spinal cord Peripheral nervous system - all the nerves that come out from the brain and spinal cord. Within the peripheral nervous system you have 'somatic' and 'visceral' nervous systems. Somatic refers to muscle, skeleton, skin. Visceral refers to internal organs. In a nutshell! ...Read more
Nervous Sys controls: Nervous system controls everthing. There are 2 autonomic systems: Parasympathetic and Sympathetic. Also a Voluntary nervous system we partially control: hitting tennis ball or walking. Symp system is the flight or fight system. Parasymp system controls GI function and others, both control Hrt Rate in opposite directions. Para alone: HrtRate 40; Symp alone HR 140. Together HR is ...Read more
Nervous system: somatic nervous system is under your control, example making given him smoking up and down. Autonomic nervous system not to not under voluntary control, example your heart rate and blood pressure are dramatically controlled depending on the needs of the body, your interest and will move by peristalsis, movement of the bowels ...Read more
What are two ways the endocrine system directly impacts the functions of the cardiovascular system?
Many...: Via adrenaline it puts more stress on the heart, making it beat harder, stronger and faster. Nor-adrenaline causes the blood vessels to contract, raising the blood pressure. High Insulin levels, as in "pre-diabetes" cause the release of free fatty acids which damages the blood vessel walls, causing plaque formation. Cortisol and other hormones also have adverse effects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If the immune system can aggressively attack and kill all peripheral nerves could the human body function with just the central nervous system?
In a very aggressive autoimmune response can the immune system attack and kill the whole of the peripheral nervous system and what's this diagnosed as?
Thats a big question: That's a big question that people dedicate their lives to study and find out. All the systems are important in "homeostasis". Narrowing which "homostasis" to a single function or a specific organ may allow a more specific explanation; but still lots and lots of effects. ...Read more
Through spinal nerve: Most peripheral nerves connect to the CNS via the spinal cord. Some through autonomic chains. ...Read more

If the immune system mediated an aggressive attack on the whole peripheral nervous system and killed the entire nerves of the body what are symptoms ?
Death: Although i just answered your question, important to understand that this would involve a rare progressive irreversible anaphylactic allergic reaction, and this really affects numerous organ systems. However, consider that there are chronic immune disorders that attack peripheral nerves (cidp), and nerves in central brain and spinal cord (ms). This is almost never an all or none situation. ...Read more
Broad question: Hi. That's really too broad a question to answer in 400 digits. WELL CONTROLLED diabetes has minimal effects, if any. Also must control BP and lipids. Poor control makes arteriosclerosis more likely. Poor control makes the immune system not work as well (infection more likely). Effects n endocrine system too broad but includes insulin, glucagon, GLP-1, ghrelin, leptin, and many others. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Google: One can google vitamin d, vitamin k, osteoporosis and arteriosclerosis. Go to medscape, linus pauling institute or the framingham heart study for recent information on the relationship between deficiencies of vitamins d and k and osteoporosis and arteriosclerosis. The evidence suggests increased risk of stroke, heart attack and osteoporosis in persons suffering deficiencies of vitamins d and k. ...Read more
In autoimmune issues do similar systems get affected in familes. Eg, glands and glands or organs and organs, for different members? Or is it random?
Partially random: There are many ai diseases. Some of them have a genetic component and affect primarily one tissue, for example rheumatoid arthritis. These diseases will affect the same tissue. However other ai diseases with many manifestations such as systemic lupus will not necessarily affect the same tissues. ...Read more
