Summary Twenty-one international specialists examine the role of the ANS in the maintenance and control of bodily homeostasis, as well as in the pathogenesis, pathophysiology, and treatment of disorders such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, asthma, diabetes, ischemia, myocardial infarction, urinary retention, and depression. While most of the articles deal with highly specific functions, there are also several broad chapters that provide a grounding in this area.
