The autonomic nervous system (ANS) plays a central role in determining the organism health and in regulating the organism’s adaptation to stressors. Nonetheless, little attention is paid to the ANS relationships with the immune and endocrine systems. More importantly, little attention is paid to the ANS development during gestation and to the factors that can affect its maturation, even though, through the analysis of heart rate variability (HRV), it is possible to monitor the ANS development during the fetal age and to prevent even deadly complications. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to give a picture of the complexity of the ANS development, highlighting the role of the vagus nerve, with particular attention to the environmental factors that can interfere with fetal and neonatal development. Lastly, some relevant guidelines for clinical practice are given.
Keywords: Fetal development, Autonomic nervous system, Vagus nerve, Heart rate variability, Perinatal period, Environmental factors.
