This volume contains many excellent features including: (a) an excellent historical review of knowledge of the involuntary nervous system, which includes the beginnings of surgical intervention; (b) anatomy of the autonomic nervous system; (c) fundamental arrangement of system as a whole. In addition, terminology is clarified—sympathetic-thoraco-lumbar outflow—(anterior roots); parasympathetic—(craniosacral division), as well as the concept of gray and white rami, etc. The peripheral autonomic plexuses are discussed in concise style.
A chapter is devoted to the general physiology, and to the pharmacology of the autonomic nervous system. The sympathomimetic agents and the parasympathomimetic agents are discussed from the clinical viewpoint.
