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.
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.
