In this paper, the problems arising from the interactions between Central and Autonomic Nervous System and exercise are evaluated in order to evidence the various backgrounds of physiological and pathological consequences of physical (mainly competitive) activity. The role of metabolic, neuroendocrine, neurochemical and autonomic factors are considered in the light of their possible influences on brain electrogenesis, blood pressure regulation and thermal homeostasis. Potential risks due to inappropriate (in terms of severity and duration) exercise on healthy of athletes are also considered.
