How does the Nervous System (NS) affect the Respiratory System
The nervous system consists of every nerve tissue in the body. You have nerve tissue in your fingers to tell you when something is hot or cold, in your stomach to let the brain know to send the impulses that digest food, and in your lungs to tell you when to breathe and how much air to breathe in. There are 3 respiratory centers in the brain that control the respiratory rate.
There are stretch receptors in the lungs that inform the brain that the alveoli are completely stretched out and that it is time to stop breathing.
In addition to all of that, you have involuntary muscle lining the respiratory tract.
There are stretch receptors in the lungs that inform the brain that the alveoli are completely stretched out and it is time to stop breathing.
