Patrick Bernard Owens (Editor)

Series: Human Anatomy and Physiology
BISAC: MED056000

Physiological functions of the body (muscle contraction, visceral activities, glandular functions, etc.) are regulated autonomously by a constituent of the peripheral nervous system commonly known as the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The ANS is controlled by centers found in the spinal cord, brain stem and hypothalamus. The authors of this book discuss the clinical features, functions and disorders of the ANS. (Imprint: Novinka)
