How is digestion affected by the nervous system?
Parasympathetic response = normal digestion! This is the healthy state. The parasympathetic response promotes peristalsis.
The sympathetic system affects digestion (like through stress hormones) but not in a good way for long-term health of the body.
For the TEAS, you’ll need to know the major hormones involved in typical digestion and how they affect peristalsis.
If you are an enrolled Prenursing Smarter student, you can find all the hormones tested on the TEAS in Module 2 of the TEAS Anatomy and Physiology lessons.
