The autonomic nervous system (ANS or visceral nervous system) is the part of the peripheral nervous system that acts as a control system functioning largely below the level of consciousness and controls visceral functions such as heart rate, intestinal actions, digestion, respiration rate, salivation, perspiration, diameter of the pupils, micturition (urination), sexual arousal and so many other amazing functons, without which we just would not live; whereas most of its actions are involuntary, some, such as breathing, work in tandem with the conscious mind.

An autonomic nervous system subsystem is the limbic system which is a group of interconnected deep brain structures, common to all mammals and involved in olfaction.(smell), emotion, motivation, behavior and various autonomic functions.
