  • The Sypathomedullary Pathway (SAM)
  • Acute Stress arouses the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS)
    • Sympathetic Nervous System
      • Neurons from the SNS  are sent to every organ in the body to prepare form 'Fight or Flight
        • The Sympathetic Adrenal Medullary System (SAM) is activated  when neurons get to the adrenal medulla
          • The body reacts  boosting the supply of oxygen and glucose to the brain and muscles and stopping non-emergency bodily functions
          • Adrenaline
            • The body reacts  boosting the supply of oxygen and glucose to the brain and muscles and stopping non-emergency bodily functions
      • Noradrenaline
        • Neurons from the SNS  are sent to every organ in the body to prepare form 'Fight or Flight
          • The Sympathetic Adrenal Medullary System (SAM) is activated  when neurons get to the adrenal medulla
            • Adrenaline
      • Parasympathetic Nervous System
        • Sends Neurotransmitters to the Adrenal Medulla  to cease the adrenaline production
    • Sympathetic Nervous System
      • Noradrenaline
      • Parasympathetic Nervous System
        • Sends Neurotransmitters to the Adrenal Medulla  to cease the adrenaline production
      • This slows the heart beat etc and restarts non - emergency functions like digestion
