The Autonomic Nervous System

  • Robert F. Schmidt
Part of the Springer Study Edition book series (SSE)


The organism communicates with its environment by means of its somatic nervous system: the sensory system receives and processes information from the environment, and the motor system provides the means for getting about in the environment. The processes in the somatic nervous system are subject, for the most part, to conscious and voluntary control.
