Autonomic nervous system, as complex, multi-faceted neural networks has now emerged as an important system involved in various neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative including memory disorders in addition to cardiovascular diseases. Earlier research in auto-pharmacology was focussed on receptor characterisation and understanding mechanism involved in specific conditions. Currently, focus is more on comorbid conditions associated with complications of cardiovascular system and neurological disorders. Interestingly, there have been increased research works on metabolic disorders. Yet another facet of research is the scientific evidence of yoga for the management of comorbid disorders associated neurological disorders.
