Item description for Autonomic Innervation of the Skin (The Autonomic Nervous System) by Judy L. Morris...
The skin provides the major protective barrier between the internal milieu of the body and the external environment. Moreover, the skin, together with its various components and appendages, mediates many kinds of dynamic interactions with the outside world, including thermoregulation, camouflage, behavioural displays, and flight. The mechanisms behind these interactions are all regulated by autonomic motor pathways, though some cases are better understood than others. This book reviews current knowledge regarding the structure and function of autonomic nerves and associated sensory nerves in the skin in a range of vertebrates, including the function of cutaneous autonomic nerves in humans in physiological and pathophysiological states. With eminent contributors from around the world, this volume forms an essential and comprehensive reference work for the area and is an important addition to this acclaimed series.
