  1. 1. The PeripheralNervous System PART 3
  2. 2. Peripheral Nervous System
  3. 3. The Peripheral Nervous System• Nervous structures outside the brain and spinal cord• Nerves allow the CNS to receive information and take action• Functional components of the PNS • Sensory inputs and motor outputs categorized as somatic or visceral • Sensory inputs also classified as general or special
  4. 4. Sensory Input and Motor Output• Sensory (afferent) signals picked up by sensor receptors, carried by nerve fibers of PNS to the CNS• Motor (efferent) signals are carried away from the CNS, innervate muscles and glands• Divided according to region they serve • Somatic body region • Visceral body region• Results in four main subdivisions • Somatic sensory • Visceral sensory • Somatic motor • Visceral motor
  5. 5. PNS Afferent Division• Afferent (sensory) division – transmits impulses from receptors to the CNS. • Somatic afferent fibers – carry impulses from skin, skeletal muscles, and joints • Visceral afferent fibers – transmit impulses from visceral organs
  6. 6. PNS Efferent Division• Motor (efferent) division – transmits impulses from the CNS to effector organs. Two subdivisions: • Somatic nervous system – provides conscious control of skeletal muscles • Autonomic nervous system – regulates smooth muscle, cardiac muscle, and glands
  7. 7. Types of Sensory and Motor Information Figure 12.3
  8. 8. Sensory• General somatic senses – include touch, pain, vibration, pressure, temperature• Proprioceptive senses – detect stretch in tendons and muscle provide information on body position, orientation and movement of body in space• Special Senses - hearing, balance, vision, olfaction (smell), gustation (taste)
  9. 9. Motor• General somatic motor • Signals contraction of skeletal muscles • Under our voluntary control• Visceral motor • Makes up autonomic nervous system (ANS) • Regulates the contraction of smooth and cardiac muscle, controls function of visceral organs • ANS has two divisions • Parasympathetic • Sympathetic
  10. 10. Divisions of the ANS• Sympathetic - “fight or flight” • Catabolic (expend energy) • Mass activation prepares for intense activity. • Heart rate (HR) increases. • Bronchioles dilate. • Blood [glucose] increases.• Parasympathetic - “feed & breed”, “rest & digest” • Maintain homeostasis • Normally not activated as a whole, stimulation of separate parasympathetic nerves. • Relaxing effects: • Decreases HR. • Dilates visceral blood vessels. • Increases digestive activity.• Dual innervation of many organs — having a brake and an accelerator provides more control
  11. 11. Sympathetic Division Organization• Preganglionic neurons in segments T1 to L2• Ganglia near the vertebral column• Sympathetic ganglia • Paired sympathetic chain ganglia • Unpaired collateral ganglia• Preganglionic fibers to adrenal medullae • Epinephrine (adrenalin) into blood stream
  12. 12. The Autonomic Nervous System• Effects of Sympathetic Activation • Generalized response in crises • Increased alertness/energy • Increased cardiovascular activity • Increased respiratory activity • Increased muscle tone
  13. 13. Parasympathetic Division Organization• Preganglionic neurons in brain stem and sacral spinal segment• Ganglionic neurons (peripheral ganglia) in or near target organ• Sacral fibers form pelvic nerves
  14. 14. The Autonomic Nervous System• Effects of Parasympathetic Activation • Relaxation • Food processing • Energy absorption • Brief effects at specific sites
  15. 15. Basic Structural Components of the PNS• Sensory receptors – pick up stimuli from inside or outside the body• Motor endings – axon terminals of motor neurons innervate effectors (muscle fibers and glands)• Nerves and ganglia • Nerves – bundles of peripheral axons • Ganglia – clusters of peripheral neuronal cell bodies
  16. 16. Nerves• Nerves – cablelike organs in the PNS• Consists of numerous axons wrapped in connective tissue • Endoneurium – layer of delicate connective tissue surrounding the axon • Perineurium – connective tissue wrapping surrounding a nerve fascicle • Nerve fascicles – groups of axons bound into bundles • Epineurium – whole nerve is surrounded by tough fibrous sheath• Axon is surrounded by Schwann cells
  17. 17. Cranial Nerves• Attach to the brain and pass through foramina of the skull• Numbered from I–XII• Cranial nerves I and II attach to the forebrain • All others attach to the brain stem• Primarily serve head and neck structures • The vagus nerve (X) extends into the abdomen
