Autonomic Nerves: Basic Science, Clinical Aspects, and Case Studies
OverviewAuthored by the same team that created "Cranial Nerves" (ISBN 1-55009-075-5), this book provides an easy-to-follow overview of autonomic nerves. The first part describes their structure and function. The second part addresses autonomic control of individual organ systems in a problem-based learning format. Throughout, the text describes afferent pathways, integrating structures and mechanisms, efferent pathways, and the autonomic effectors. Principles of autonomic neurotransmission are also discussed.
