Respiratory function is under close control of the autonomic nervous system. Recent data indicate that dysfunction and dysregulation of both the non-adrenergic non-cholinergic (NANC) and cholinergic system contribute to the pathogenesis of chronic inflammatory lung disease such as bronchial asthma.
