  • When stress is detected, our eyes and ears tells the amygdala in our brain.
  • Look out guys! Stress is coming.
  • From here the amygdala warns the hypothalamus.
  • STRESS!!
  • Through the autonomic nervous system, the hypothalamus warns the rest of the body.
  • We told you!
  • The autonomic nervous system has two parts. The sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.
  • The sympathetic nervous system sends a message to the adrenal glands, which releases a hormone called epinephrine.
  • Epinephrine causes the physical symptoms of stress, such as anger, quickened pulse, anxiety, nervousness, sweating, etc.
  • Once the epinephrine has subsided, the parasympathetic nervous system takes over and regulates the body's symptoms.
