Slide 9 - Effects of nerve agent on victim The nervous system controls body functions by secreting chemical transmitters which act as "instructions" to nerves, muscles and glands. Nerve agent exposure -interferes with the normal instructions of chemical transmitters that direct the muscle or gland to return to an un-stimulated, relaxed state. Action of toxic nerve agents is to over-stimulate the nerve endings and central nervous system.
