Autonomic Nervous System is a control system that controls body function such as heart rate, respiratory rate, salivation, digestion, perspiration, pupillary dilation, sexual arousal, breathing, and swallowing.

Usually crisis is a bad things and our body reacts to it before we can think about it. It makes our blood pressure rise, heart rate rise, make our breathing difficult and basically mess with our whole body function system.
