Sample text

For each monitored variable there is a corresponding literal or figurative homeostat and there are multiple effectors. This section presents formally the rules of the game of life in higher organisms. A tremendous array of sensors detect changes in levels of monitored variables (fig. 8). Stretch receptors in the walls especially of the atria of the heart, the thin-walled chambers where the blood in the great veins enters the heart, provide information to the brain about cardiac filling and therefore about blood volume.

This explains why orthostatic hypotension constitutes a cardinal manifestation of failure of the sympathetic nervous system. Climbing snakes can wriggle up trees, but water snakes spend their lives horizontal, surrounded by about the same pressure from head to tail. Several years ago, Harvey Lillywhite, of the University of Florida at Gainesville, placed different types of snakes into a cylindrical plastic tube and then tilted them head-up. Among climbing snakes, nothing much happened, but among water snakes, during the tilting blood pooled in the tail end, the blood pressure at the midpoint of the body fell, and the heart rate increased compensatorily but inadequately to maintain the blood pressure at the level of the head.

The ganglia are arranged like pearls on a string on each side of the spinal column. It was partly because of this geographical separation from the central nervous system that Langley inferred that the nerve cells in the ganglia would have independent, or autonomous, functions. As noted above, the idea of the sympathetic nervous system antedated the discovery of the circulation of the blood by fourteen centuries. In more modern times, the sympathetic nervous system reemerged in the early eighteenth century, referring specifically to the chains of ganglia and associated nerves on each side of the spinal column in the chest and abdomen.
