Regulation of Heart

The number of electrical impulses initiated by the SA node is primarily the result of its innervation by fibers from both sympathetic and parasympathetic branches of the autonomic nervous system. Sympathetic branch have a positive chronotropic effect (increase in rate) while parasympathetic branch have a negative chronotropic effect (decrease in rate). Parasympathetic innervations occurs by way of the vagus nerve.
