sweat glands^ & penile vv.; also NPY, ATP NB: * Peripheral sympathetic neurones are not confined to ganglia: they are embedded in sympathetic
nn., i.e., in grey & white rami communicantes, splanchnic nn., etc. (Pick, 1970).
^ Sympathetic nn. are generally vasoconstrictor; sympathetic vasodilation in coronary aa. is mostly due to
inhibition of parasympathetic nn.
Afferent nn. for autonomic reflexes are found in somatic nn.; visceral afferent fibres accompany autonomic
nn. (rami communicantes, splanchnic nn., vagus, etc.)

stimulates (= sudomotion; ACh)
NB. Terror may activate parasympathetic nn. to inhibit sphincters of stomach, bladder & rectum, with
decrease in heart rate (vasovagal syncope).
Stimulation of parasympathetic nn. has little effect on liver, adrenal glands, sweat glands, skeletal mm.,
skin, or hair. Vasodilation in skeletal mm. in exercise is due to local release of NO from endothelium.
* Cells of suprarenal medulla are considered to represent postganglionic sympathetic neurons.
ENTERIC NERVOUS ‘SYSTEM’ (Remark, 1847; Langley, 1900)
• a neuronal network within GIT (as distinct from sympathetic nerves and parasympathetic ganglia). • comprises sensory & motor neurones, interneurones (excitatory, inhibitory), neurites, dendrites & glial cells in alimentary canal (oesophagus to anus), pancreas & gall bladder, i.e., intrinsic to viscera. • in alimentary canal, is usually found in 2 annular plexuses in different layers: larger myenteric (Auerbach’s) plexus; smaller submucosal (Meissner’s) plexus. • involved in reflex peristalsis and secretion from intestinal mucosa, hormone release, etc. • functions reflexly in absence of extrinsic autonomic input, but modified by extrinsic input. • transmitters include nitric oxide (NO), vasoactive intest. peptide (VIP), substance P, ATP, GABA, etc. • co-transmitters: ACh & SP in excitatory cells; ATP, NO, VIP in inhibitory cells.
