THE AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM

The autonomic nervous system regulates many bodily processes (HR, BP, digestion, respiration, blood pH, etc) automatically on a subconscious level.  The flow of this system is as follows:

CNS –> Preganglionic fibers –> Ganglion –> Postganglionic fibers –> End organ


The autonomic nervous system consists of the ‘sympathetic’ and ‘parasympathetic’ systems.
