Abstract

The term “autonomic” implies autonomous or self-controlling. It suggests automatic regulation without cerebral control, in this instance, of visceral functions. Therefore, the autonomic nervous system controls the motor functions of the viscera, since it controls all smooth (involuntary) muscle, cardiac muscle and glands.
