How is the digestive system related to the nervous system?
The digestive system is related to the nervous system in such a way that the nervous system dictates the speed of breaking down of food. The nervous system overseas activity in the digestive tract, and regulates secretion if there are changes.
The digestive system actually functions fairly independently of the central nervous system in organisms such as humans. The necessary functions of the digestive system are performed automatically by the enteric nervous system. Central nervous system can only modulate the activity (increase or decrease) of the digestive system.
Which division of the nervous system sends a message to the digestive system when time to produce enzymes?
The sympathetic division of your autonomic nervous system (ANS) increases the activity of most bodily systems excepting the digestive and urinary. The layman's term for the sympathetic nervous system is the "fight-or-flight" nervous system. The parasympathetic nervous system is the other division of the ANS and is termed the "rest and digest" nervous system.
Digestive system has got own local nervous system in the form of myenteric plexus. But then it is supplied by vagus nerve, the tenth cranial nerve, that comes down all the way from your skull. It has got powerful influence on your digestive system. Only terminal part of digestive system gets it's parasympathetic nervous supply from the sacral autonomic outflow.
Which nervous system division controls smooth muscle contraction and secretion in the digestive system?
Autonomous nervous system. Consisting of Parasympathetic nervous system and Sympathetic nervous system. Parasympathetic nervous system increases the secretions of digestive tract and Sympathetic system decreases the secretions. Parasympathetic system increases the contractions of smooth muscles and increases the rate and force of peristalsis and Sympathetic system does vise verse.
Stimulation of the Parasympathetic nervous system causes an increase in digestive tract mobility. When stimulated the parasympathetic post-ganglionic neurons release a hormone called Acetylcholine. This causes the Digestive tract to increase its contractions. Counteracting this increase in digestive tract mobility is the sympathetic nervous system, which releases a hormone called noradrenaline which slows down the digestive tracts contractions. This is how the Parasympathetic Nervous System gets the name "rest and digest"
yes, in a sort of a small way. The Nervous system helps control the muscles, the muscles help with the movement of organs wihtin the digestive system, such as the stomach, the stomach muscles are told by the nervous system to move, the stomach muscles are apart of the digestive system. in a way yes.
The digestive and nervous systems work together in many ways. The nervous system senses hunger and satiety and sends signals of when to eat and when to stop. In addition, the brain controls the muscles which enable us to eat and eliminate food. The products of the digestive system provide materials which are useful in building neurotransmitters.
