Más información


The autonomic nervous system controls the body'smechanism for controlling blood pressure, heart rate and other functionsinvolved in the response to stress. This book presents the canon of autonomicneuroscience to students, scientists and physicians in a concise and accessiblemanner. This edition has been greatly expanded and updated and includes all thelatest developments in the field of autonomic cardiovascular regulation andneuroscience. 



  • Greatly amplified and updated from previous edition including the latest developments in the field of autonomic cardiovascular regulation and neuroscience

  • Provides key information about all aspects of autonomic physiology and pathology

  • Discusses stress and how its effects on the body are mediated

  • Compiles contributions by over 140 experts on the autonomic nervous system
