In general, the sympathetic system makes us feel excited, angry or frightened --- it is part of the ‘fight or flight’ impulse. On the other hand, the parasympathetic system calms us down, lowering our blood pressure and slowing down our heart rate. Peripheral nerves/neurons all have a similar structure. They consist of an axon, with a cell body which communicates with other neurons via lots of branches termed dendrites. Signals are transmitted by electrical and chemical (neurotransmitter) means.

However, expiration is passive, that is, no muscles are involved and no energy is expended --elastic rebound of the rib cage and diaphragm reduces the thoracic cavity volume expelling the air. 5 Respiratory system Each lung is divided into lobes. The right lung, which has three lobes, is slightly larger than the left, which has two. 26). The diaphragm, the primary muscle involved in respiration, separates the lungs from the abdominal cavity. To breathe in (inhale), the diaphragm tightens and flattens and the rib cage rises increasing the volume of the thoracic cavity.

On the other hand, the parasympathetic system calms us down, lowering our blood pressure and slowing down our heart rate. Peripheral nerves/neurons all have a similar structure. They consist of an axon, with a cell body which communicates with other neurons via lots of branches termed dendrites. Signals are transmitted by electrical and chemical (neurotransmitter) means. The electrical signal is created by sodium and potassium ions moving across a membrane, called an action potential, which is able to travel considerable distances without losing amplitude, because the nerve cells are lagged with a fatty substance called myelin which acts as an insulating material.
