    body responds to stress by ANS i think
    hypothalamus produces hormones in response to stress
    The pit gland directs endocrine system and adrenal medulla produces adrenaline and noradrenaline as a response

    Also
    fight/flight response......when an animal feels threatened its response is fight or flight. Adrenaline and noradrenaline are produced as a response to stressor and body responds by trying to adapt to normal level of functioning hence fight/flight

    The body's stress-response mainly involves the adrenal glands- the adrenal cortex and the adrenal medulla. These release different sets of hormones into the bloodstream. Andreal cortex: releases corticosteroids. Adrenal medulla: adrenaline and nonadrenaline. To give a six mark answer to that question I'd speak in more detail about the adrenal cortex and the adrenal medulla and also about the different systems involved with these 2 glands (pituitary gland, ANS etc) Hope this helps

    This may help.

    It sounds like ur doing psych on aqa, and this stuff is aimed at ocr, so not everything will be relevant, but u might find something u like.

    www.simplypsych.com is a really good web site.

    Hope this helps
