The Autonomic Nervous System

  • Charles M. Tipton


It is a daunting task to present in a cohesive chapter a historical perspective on the functions of the autonomic nervous system during exercise by normal and physically trained subjects. The multiplicity of systems regulated by the autonomic nervous system is summarized as follows by Hamill (76, p. 12):

The autonomic nervous system (ANS) is structurally and functionally positioned to interface between the internal and external milieu, coordinating bodily functions to insure normal homeostasis (cardiovascular control, thermal regulation, gastrointestinal motility, urinary and bowel excretory functions, reproduction, and normal metabolic and endocrine physiology), and adaptive responses to stress (fight or flight response).
