The skin provides the major protective barrier between the internal milieu of the body and the external environment. Moreover, the skin, together with its various components and appendages, mediates many kinds of dynamic interactions with the outside world, including thermoregulation, camouflage, behavioural displays, and flight. The mechanisms behind these interactions are all regulated by autonomic motor pathways. this book reviews the current knowledge on the structure and function of autonomic nerves and associated sensory nerves in the skin in a range of vertebrates, including the function of cutaneous autonomic nerves in humans in physiological states.With eminentcontributors from around the world, this book forms an essential and comprehensive reference work for the area and is an important addition to this acclaimed series.
