The autonomous nervous system plays a major role in controlling the bodily functions. The autonomous system is known to be modulated by strong changes in the environment with the central nervous system involved in it. But does the autonomous system immediately respond with respect to mild and neutral sensory stimuli still remains unanswered. In this study we look at immediate responses of the autonomous network to these sensory stimuli. We exploited the large scale control over the blood flow by the autonomous system to understand the immediate effects on autonomous network with sensory stimuli. We then trained a machine to predict the sensory stimuli based on contrast in patterns of blood flow. The machine was able to predict the different sensory stimuli with high accuracy suggesting that there exist an immediate sensory-autonomous coupling. This results opens a path to a lot of questions as to how this coupling is achieved.
