Problem: Albuterol is a drug used to treat asthma. One of its major side effects is tachycardia (an increase in heart rate). Based on that side effect, which branch of the autonomic nervous is likely activated by albuterol?

Problem: Physostigmine is a drug that blocks acetylcholinesterase, thereby raising the amount of acetylcholine present in the synaptic cleft at all synapses that use Ach as an NT. Which of the following type(s) of cell(s) will be affected by the actions of physostigmine? (Choose all that apply.)
