Control Mechanisms in the Sympathetic Nervous System

Abstract

Ever since the science of neurobiology emerged from the more general field of biological sciences, the main effort has been directed to gaining information on the laws which control growth and differentiation of its 10 billion nerve cells and on the factors which operate in the building of the immensely complex wiring system between neurons and between these cells and their highly diversified end organs. It is fortunate that the first students in this field perhaps did not even realize the magnitude of the problem which they were facing and the impossibility of solving it with the primitive tools and techniques which were then available, for otherwise they would have invested no further efforts along this line.
