[shorted version of the question] Epinephrine / Sympathetic nervous system functions include all except: A. increased heart rate B. elevated blood glucose levels C. constricted pupils D. increased basal metabolism The answer is C. I understand sympathetic DILATES pupils (so you can see for "fight/flight" response). Lets say C was not in the choices. A is sympathetic. Questions: how is "elevated blood glucose levels" a sympathetic response? if parasympathetic is "rest and digest" shouldn't increased metabolism - in other words increased digestion - be a parasympathetic response? Maybe I need to differentiate metabolism vs digestion... please help!
