VII. Overview of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) A. General Functions 1. efferent control of everything except skeletal m. 2. pupil size, accommodation for near/far vision 3. dilation/constriction of blood vasculature 4. rate and force of heart contractions 5. gastrointestinal movements 6. secretion of most glands B. General Differences from Somatic Nervous System 1. all fibers are efferent (motor) 2. two different types of efferent fibers i. two neurotransmitters (ACh and Norepinephrine) 3. must synapse on ganglion before effecting target 4. has two primary divisions a. sympathetic b. parasympathetic 5. can act in both inhibitory and excitatory fashion VIII. Structure of Autonomic Pathway A. preganglionic neurons - spinal cord -> ganglion 1. sympathetic (thoracolumbar) a. lateral grey horn of T1-L3 2. parasympathetic a. lateral grey horn of S2-S4 b. nuclei of cranial nerves III, VII, IX, X
