  1. I have read a couple of articles (for example http://www.kean.edu/~jfasick/docs/Spring_09_AP-1/Chapter%2014.pdf and others that I cannot remember the URL) that state that the autonomic nervous system is composed of motor neurons while alluding that the ANS does not contain sensory neurons. Then there are other articles that state that the ANS is composed of both motor and sensory neurons (http://users.rcn.com/jkimball.ma.ultranet/BiologyPages/P/PNS.html. Also this wikipedi page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autonomic_nervous_system#Sensory_neurons) describes sensor nerves in the ANS. Which is correct? John Springer Also the first paragraph of this article http://www.scholarpedia.org/article/Autonomic_nervous_system#Sympathetic_Pathways suggest that the ANS does not contain sensory neurons.
  2. I am currently writing a book on neurophysiology. I have completed a first chapter (which is not chapter 1) which is entitled "Action Potentials, Voltage-gated Ion Channels and Concentration Gradients in Nerve Cells". The chapter was peer reviewed for grammar and continuity, however; I am having difficulty knowing where to submit the chapter for a technical review. I am not sure if this is the proper place, but it seemed like a good start. Can anyone here help? I have attached a zip of the pdf in case anyone can help. The target audience are those that have completed a semester or two of physiology and chemistry. If this is not the correct place then please excuse my ignorance and advise of an alternate site. Sincere appreciation John Springer VoltageGatedIonChans_ForProofReading.zip
