Neurotransmitters in the autonomic nervous system

Acetylcholine: preganglionic sympathetic and parasympathetic neurons; postganglionic parasympathetic neurons; postganglionic sympathetic sudomotor fibres.

Noradrenaline: postganglionic sympathetic neurons.

Neuropeptides and putative neurotransmitters coexist at the various levels of the autonomic nervous system, namely the central autonomic network, the spinal cord and both pre- and postganglionic terminals. They are involved in the regulation of visceral function, and in the modulation of integrated functions such as cognition, locomotion and pain.
