Innervation of the Heart
The neural control of the heart, sympathetic and parasympathetic interactions, baroreceptor reflex regulation, and the role of the central nervous system as an integrator of neural influences, have been extensively reviewed by Randall (1977), Levy and Martin (1979), Downing (1979) and Korner (1979). This chapter will discuss the distribution and morphology of neural elements in the heart and their relationships to myocardial tissue as revealed by chemical, histochemical, and ultrastructural techniques.
