Predict whether the following organs would be excited or inhibited in the following scenarios. Remember to include the neurotransmitters used by the sympathetic and parasympathetic branches. Then once you figure out which division is trying to communicate with the target, then ask what should the target do if the parasympathetic is talking and saying “rest and digest” versus if the sympathetic is talking and saying “fight or flight”.
Scenario 1 : Stomach’s response to NE
Scenario 2: heart’s response to NE
Scenario 3: hearts response to ACH (acetylcholine)
Scenario 4: Beta blocker drug (blocks B1 NE receptors on heart)
Scenario 5: alpha blocker drug (blocks alpha 1 NE receptor on blood vessels)
