What differentiates Somatic Experiencing from talk therapy is its unique approach regarding physiological responses of the body instead of traditional psychological responses. SE gets to the trauma response at the source, the autonomic nervous system, which drives the symptoms of trauma and stress related conditions if the fight or flight The peripheral nervous system consists of the somatic nervous system (SNS) and the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The SNS consists of motor neurons that stimulate skeletal muscles. In contrast, the ANS consists of motor neurons that control smooth muscles, cardiac muscles, and glands. In addition, the ANS monitors visceral organs and blood /the-nervous-system/the-autonomic-nervous-system. Gellhorn, E. Principles of Autonomic-Somatic Integrations. Minneapolis, E. B.

ACh is the primary neurotransmitter of preganglionic neurons, most parasympathetic ganglion
