Parasympathetic Nervous System - this division of the autonomic nervous system that goes into action when the body is faced with a non-emergency situation (for instance, the digestion of a meal).  Essentially, it does the opposite of the sympathetic nervous system. The two systems are reciprocally innervated, and respond to one another. For instance if the sympathetic nervous system stimulates the heart too much, the parasympathetic nervous system will respond by slowing it down.  The parasympathetic nervous system is somewhat more selective and specialized than its counterpart. Unlike the sympathetic nervous system, it is quite capable of stimulating only one organ or gland at a time, without affecting any others. For instance, the parasympathetic nervous system can stimulate the tear ducts when one is sad or distraught, without producing any other physiological effects.  See: Autonomic Nervous System, Sympathetic Nervous System.

Sympathetic Nervous System - the division of the autonomic nervous system that acts as a sort of “red alert” system that goes into action when one is faced with an emergency situation.  If the sympathetic nervous system is stimulated (or conversely, if the parasympathetic nervous system is depressed), the heart beats faster and the blood pressure rises.  The blood that is near the skin or in the stomach area rushes to the muscles tissues, this preparing the individual for evasive or defensive action (fight or flight). The individual may become pale due to the blood leaving the skin area, but this means there will be less blood loss if physical injury is sustained.  Digestion is greatly slowed or stopped all together, as the body gathers all of its resources for the crisis of the moment. The sympathetic nervous system was intended to help one cope with infrequent, emergency situations. However, the tensions of modern living sometimes force this system to work overtime, resulting in chronic high blood pressure, nervousness, and other adverse health problems.  See: Autonomic Nervous System, Parasympathetic Nervous System.
