2 Ephinephrine and norepinephrine are neurotransmitters and hormones ii There is no equivalent mechanism by which the ANS can actively decrease stroke volume 1 Stroke volume will decrease passively as concentrations of epinephrine and norepinephrine decrease g Extrinsic Regultion of Heart Rate i Stimulation by sympathetic division of autonomic nervous system increases heart rate 1 By releasing norephinephrine ii Stimulation by parasympathetic division of ANA decreases heart rate 1 By releasing acetylcholine iii The ANS can actively increase or decrease heart rate 1 Due to the opposing
