Adapted from Schliack and Schiffter (1979), Fig. 4d. Vol. 1/4A. Copyright 1979 by Springer. Used by permission of the publisher All existing findings concerning the central innervation of sweat gland activity point to several centers for the origin of sweating, being located at different levels of the CNS and partly independent of each other. Sympathetic activity can be elicited from the cortex, the basal ganglia, diencephalic structures like the thalamus and the hypothalamus, the limbic system, and from brain stem areas.
They are totally missing on the lips and in the inner ear channel (Pinkus, 1971), on the glans penis and clitoris, on the labia minora, and on the inner surface of the prepuce (Montagna & Parakkal, 1974). 8 However, not all of these glands are active. Children may have much greater sweat gland densities, since their density decreases from fetal stage (3,000/cm2 in the 24th week of pregnancy) to adulthood (Sect. 1). This is because the total number of sweat glands is fixed at birth, yet the total body surface area increases by a factor of 7 from birth to adulthood 8 Sato et al.
This, along with the existence of vasodilative neuronal influences on the skin’s blood vessels (see Footnote 12, Sect. 1), could never be proved to exist. There is no need to assume the existence of a sweat inhibiting innervation, since the sweat normally vaporizes so quickly in the absence of sudomotor impulses, that additional sweat inhibition would not reduce the amount of sweat significantly. As Sato et al. (1989) pointed out, speculative debates about the possibility of dual cholinergic and adrenergic innervation of the sweat glands were around for decades until Uno (1977) directly demonstrated catecholamine fluorescence in the periglandular nerves of both human and macaque eccrine sweat glands, thus settling the issue.
