Postganglionic Sympathetic Neurons:

• Postganglionic sympathetic neurons arise from Chromaffin cells.

Neuropore Anomalies:

Rostral Neuropore Fails to Close:

• Anencephaly, polyhydraminos; increased AFP.

Caudal Neuropore Fails to Close:

• Spina bifidia; increased AFP.

Down syndrome:

• Reduced AFP.

Autonomic Nervous System:

• Innervates motor of smooth, cardiac, and glands.

• Two divisions: sympathetic (thoracolumbar) and parasympathetic (craniosacral).

Sympathetic:

• Smooth and cardiac, glands, thoracic viscera, foregut and midgut, pelvic viscera, and hindgut.

Parasympathetic:

• Glands and smooth muscle of head, viscera of neck, thorax, foregut, midgut, hindgut, and pelvic viscera of bladder and erectile tissue.
