Flashcards in autonomic nervous system Deck (22):
1

two parts of peripheral nervous system

autonomic nervous system
somatic nervous system

2

two parts of autonomic nervous system

sympathetic nervous system
parasympathetic nervous system

3

autonomic nervous system is also called

visceral nervous system

4

autonomic nervous system ennervates

smooth muscles and glands + involuntary functions
- heart (control/regulation)
- respiratory
- gi
- bladder
- eyes
- glands

5

sympathetic nervous system neurotransmitters

are catecholamines: epinephrine, norepinephrine, dopamine

6

parasympathetic nervous system neurotransmitters

acetylcholine (aka cholinergic)

7

sympathetic nervous system receptors and sites

A1, A2, B1, B2
heart, bronchioles, gi tract, bladder, eye muscle

8

parasympathetic nervous system receptors

nicotinic
muscarinic

9

inactivates cholinergic neurotransmitters

acetylcholinesterase inactivates acetylcholine

10

sympathomimetic

adrenergic agonist

11

sympatholytic

adrenergic blocker

12

parasympathomimetic

cholinergic

13

parasympatholytic

anticholinergic

14

adrenergic agonists have the same effect as
(plus hr example)

parasympatholytics aka anticholinergics
HR goes up

15

adrenergic blockers have the same effect as
(plus hr example)

parasympathomimetics aka cholinergic agonists
HR goes down

16

mydriasis

pupil dilation
duh duh (myDryasis, Dilation)

17

miosis

pupil constriction
tiny o (miOsis, constriction)

18

catecholamines cause what kind of response?

sympathomimetic (aka like adrenergic agonist)

19

autonomic nervous system has what kind of control?

involuntary

20

somatic nervous system has what kind of control?

voluntary

21

afferent nerves do what?

transmit from PNS to CNS - sensory

22

efferent nerves do what

transmit from CNS to PNS - motor
