  5. The ANS Parasympathetic and Sympathetic Divisions:
    • Parasympathetic division - important for control of 'normal' body functions,
    • e.g., normal operation of digestive system

    • Sympathetic division - also called the 'fight or flight' division; important
    • in helping us cope with stress

    A complex system of nerves and networks in the brain which has pathways to ANS that controls the basic emotions and drives.

    • Efferent

  27. Which nervous system do MOST of the cholinergic receptors belong to?

    Exceptions include....
    Parasympathetic Nervous system

    Exceptions include: _________
  28. HEART
    -When ACh binds to muscularinic receptors on SA node......
    -When NE attaches to SA node beta receptors..
    -What are chemo receptors in carotid & aorta
    - The receptors allows K+ ions to escape-- Hyper-polarizing the cells which slows down the heart rate.

    - The cardiac cells depolarize faster and contract harder thus increasing heart rate.

    Visceral Afferents are chemoreceptors

    (Fibers that do not use ACH or NE instead they use __ , ___, and ___)

    What dilates?
    No causes...
