The autonomic nervous system is the portion of the nervous system that controls most visceral functions of the body. This system helps to control arterial pressure, gastrointestinal motility, gastrointestinal secretion, urinary bladder emptying, sweating, body temperature, and many other activities.  Some of these activities are controlled almost entirely and some only partially by the autonomic nervous system.
