    Psychology -> Somatic and automatic nervous system Somatic and automatic nervous system The role of the somatic nervous system in the control of skeletal muscles The somatic nervous system is the system of nerves which carries messages to and from the sense organs and skeletal muscles. These nerves are the cables that carry information from receptors in the skin, muscles and joints to the central nervous system and then carry commands from the central nervous system to the muscles. Thus, the somatic nervous system controls voluntary behaviour, such as making your leg move. It enables us to feel the world and move around in it. The role of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) in the control of non-skeletal muscles The autonomic nervous system is a system of nerves which carries information to and from the internal organs and glands. It controls automatic and involuntary bodily functions that we don't normally think about, such as our heart rate and perspiration.
