The fight-or-flight response


The fight-or-flight response.

Adrenaline, also called epinephrine, is a hormone that triggers the body's so called fight-or-flight response. It is produced when a situation requires immediate action.

1)increasing blood pressure

2)expanding airways

3)directing blood towards heart and lungs

4)reducing pain sensibility

5)dilation of the pupil

6)altering metabolism to release sufficient amount of glucose as a source of energy
