Frolich, Ph.D. Pia mater (deep) delicate highly vascular adheres to brain/sp cd tissue Subarachnoid space (where CSF flows) Arachnoid mater (middle) impermeable layer = barrier raised off pia mater by rootlets Spinal Dura Mater single dural sheath Human Anatomy, Larry M. Frolich, Ph.D. Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Why double innervation? Paraympathetic keeps normal rhythms, functioning--all calm Sympathetic is fight or flight fear response Human Anatomy, Larry M. Frolich, Ph.D. Parasympathetic Sympathetic Location Cranial, sacral Thoracic, Lumbar Ganglia In target organs Close to spinal cord Neuro-Transmitter Acetylcholine (calmer) Norepinephrine (adrenalin!!)
