    I don't suppose you know anything about the Hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis? Or is it the same kinda thing?

    I did Stress for AS Psychology as well and got in a right flap about it because I hate biology type things! Anyway, a lot of the textbooks go into great detail with regards to the functioning of the various brain centres involved in the body's response to stress. My tutor told me that such exhaustive detail wouldn't be required in the exam and that I just needed to be able to name the main structures and briefly describe their functions. I made very brief revision notes and anything that I could make into a diagram, I did, with bright colours. Do this quite a while before the exam and then leave the diagram in a place where you'll see it regularly (e.g on desk). This is what I did and I came out with an A so it worked for me. Hope this helps (BTW I've still got all my notes for that exam so if there's anything else you need a bit of help on, feel free to ask.)

    I've got the Eyseneck textbook and it does explain it, only using very long and complicated words and sentences. I think the book assumes having an ok knowledge of biology which i don't have (due to having the most crap teacher in the world for GCSE). Thanks for trying to help anyway. Grrr to all those people who say psychology is easy!
    i know how u feel. im useless at the biology stuff and i found stress really hard at AS. luckily i got an ok mark on that paper and so can look back on it and smile.

    my tips basically - dont just stick to the textbook, look in other textbooks, and read around a bit about the topic. ull find it helps because it will put it in different ways.

    hi ya

    nice bit of explaining ainat87
    sam it wud b jst arnd the same ......

    adrenal gland is divided into 2-parts adrenal medulla n adrenal cortex ...pituitary affects the cortex n ANS affects the medulla.

    when a stressor enters a body the hypothalamus triggers the action of pituitary gland, in turn pituitary releases hormones innto the blood streamone of tis hormone is ACTHwhich travels to the adrenal cortex and stimulates the release of corticosteroids intot the blood stream....these hormones have different effect on the body and play a vital role in stress response.


    in short the way i revised my stress responses

    Stress
    |
    Hypothalamus
    |
    Pituitary gland
    ACTH>|
    Adrenal cortex
    |<corticosteroids
    Metabolic effects on body


    Stress
    |
    hypothalamus
    |
    ANS
    |
    Adrenal medulla
    |
    Adrenaline /nor-adrenaline in the
    Blood stream




    with ANS u have to look at the branch which is activated the 1 i wrote down is sympathetic branch i guess...
    long reply hope tis helps
    cheers
