Salivary glands: increased saliva. Pelvic organs : ___________________ of urinary bladder, uterus, and rectum. o Genitalia: erection in males, and lubrication and erection in females. Sympathetic Nervous System (fight or flight) o Sympathetic location: preganglionic neurons in the thoracic and lumbar regions of the spinal cord and the brain o Sympathetic effects Pupil: ______________ Salivary glands: inhibits salivation, increased mucus secretion Heart: increases the heart rate and force of contraction Lungs: mainly epinephrine secreted from the adrenal medulla to dilate bronchioles.
