The parasympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system with minimal input from the central nervous system initiates erection.
The reticular formation
It controls involuntary actions such as heart rate, digestion, respiration rate, salivation, perspiration, sexual arousal, and urination.
The Reticular Activating System (RAS). It controls transitions between sleep and wakefulness, arousal, and attention.
The Arousal was created in 1988.
Arousal Disasters was created in 2003.
Darn near everything, it controls salivation, breathing, sexual arousal, pupil dialation, really, anything that's automatic, it's a major part of the CNS.
Arousal can effect sport performance, for example if you have poor arousal, you will not be ready for a sports game and won't perform to the standard you can do. If you have good arousal your performance will be better as you will be ready for a performance. By Lewis soal
The brainstem is to arousal as the limbic system is to emotion.
thoughts that leads to cognitive aware of need is cognitive arousal...
Sporting Arousal is caused by the pressure of an event, turning into excitement
The somatic nervous system controls the voluntary movement of skeletal muscles, such as when you move your arm. The autonomic nervous systems controls the involuntary actions of internal organs and glands. The beating of your heart is controlled by this system. The autonomic nervous system is further broken up into two parts: the sympathetic, which controls arousal (think fight-or-flight), and the parasympathetic, which controls calming (think rest and digest).
The brainstem controls several body functions. Heart rate, Blood pressure, alertness and arousal are all controlled by the brainstem. In infants, there are studies that prove that the brain stem is partly in control of auditory functions.
