Autonomic nervous system
The autonomic nervous system is the part of the peripheral nervous system that controls visceral functions such as heart rate, respiratory rate and digestion. It consists of enteric, parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems and is regulated by the central nervous system, but functions largely autonomously, without conscious control.
