Can you compare the somatic nervous system with the autonomic nervous system?

Can you compare the somatic nervous system with the autonomic nervous system?

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

Autonomic Nervous System (Definition)

The autonomic nervous system is part of the peripheral nervous system. It is ‘autonomic’ because it does not require voluntary thought to function. The autonomic nervous system is divided into the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. The sympathetic system manages “fight or flight” responses and the parasympathetic system acts as a counterpart that manages ...Read more

Describe the features of an autonomic nervous system disorder.?

Describe the features of an autonomic nervous system disorder.?

A broad topic: The autonomic nervous system controlls body functions that occur automatically. This includes heart rate, breathing, blood pressure and sweating among others. Autonomic disorder can be many and varied. An example would be failure of the blood pressure to increase when stading from a lying position causing dizziness or fainting. Another may be a fast resting heart rate. Talk to your doctor for more. ...Read more

What they control: The central nervous system refers to the brain and the spinal cord. The autonomic nervous system is a part of the peripheral nervous system that is involved in processes related to heart rate, sweating, blood pressure, and other processes that we don't think about, aka the name "autonomic". Autonomic nervous system disorders include fainting, fast heart rate, fatigue and sweating disorders. ...Read more

Would activation of the sympathetic or parasympathetic nervous system lead to hunger?

Would activation of the sympathetic or parasympathetic nervous system lead to hunger?

A PairofSympathetics: The answer could be made VERY complicated but, just to sort-of give an overall picture: if you are jagged-up by the sympathetic system, you won't have much of an appetite unless you're a shark on the make (well, a shark is a Chondrichthyte so technically doesn't have a sympathetic nervous system....whatever...), but if you are calmed down parasympathetically your juices will flow, ready to eat. ...Read more

What is the difference between the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system?

Anatomical terms: Brain, spinal cord, and cranial nerves, especially optic nerves, all start within the central system. Once outside the spinal canal these nerves are now called peripheral nerves and connect to muscle to cause contraction, and return to spinal cord, sensory nerves, to report peripheral sensations from outer world. ...Read more

What is the autonomic nervous system (ans)?

What is the autonomic nervous system (ans)?

Autonomic nervous: System is the part of the peripheral nervous system that controls the "automatic" body functions -- heart rate, respiration, digestion, perspiration, hormone secretion, etc, versus the motor nervous system that controls voluntary movement. Biofeedback research has proven that even many ANS functions can be consciously affected or trained -- www.Bcia.Org or www.Aapb.Org. ...Read more
