Which hormones are produced by the adrenal medulla and released under the influence of the sympathetic nervous system?

Epinephrine and norepinephrine

What effect does epinephrine have on bronchial dilation and blood flow to skeletal muscles and muscles of the heart?

It increases bronchial dilation and blood flow to skeletal muscles and muscles of the heart

What is the net effect of norepinephrine on blood pressure?

It increases blood pressure

Epinephrine and norepinephrine are produced by the adrenal cortex.

False

Both epinephrine and norepinephrine are released under the influence of the parasympathetic nervous system.

False

Over secretion of epinephrine and norepinephrine can lead to hypertension and aggression.

True

What are the two hormones produced by the adrenal medulla under the influence of the sympathetic nervous system?

Epinephrine and norepinephrine.

What is the net effect of epinephrine on metabolic activities, bronchial dilation, and blood flow to skeletal muscles and muscles of the heart?

Epinephrine is a more potent stimulator of these activities.

What can over secretion of epinephrine and norepinephrine lead to?

Hypertension and aggression.

What are the effects of epinephrine on metabolic activities, bronchial dilation, and blood flow to skeletal muscles and muscles of the heart?

Epinephrine stimulates metabolic activities, bronchial dilation, and increased blood flow to skeletal muscles and muscles of the heart.

What is the net effect of epinephrine and norepinephrine on blood pressure?

The net effect of epinephrine and norepinephrine is a rise in blood pressure.

What can over secretion of epinephrine and norepinephrine lead to?

Over secretion of epinephrine and norepinephrine can lead to hypertension and aggression.

What hormones are produced by the adrenal medulla under the influence of the sympathetic nervous system?

Epinephrine and norepinephrine

What is the net effect of epinephrine and norepinephrine on blood pressure?

A rise in blood pressure

What can under secretion of epinephrine and norepinephrine lead to?

Failure to combat with daily life emergency situations

Match the following hormones with their effects:

Epinephrine = More potent stimulator of metabolic activities, bronchial dilation, and increased blood flow to skeletal muscles and muscles of the heart Norepinephrine = Has more influence on peripheral vasoconstriction, resulting in a rise in blood pressure Both Epinephrine and Norepinephrine = Released under the influence of sympathetic nervous system Neither Epinephrine nor Norepinephrine = Produced by the adrenal cortex

Match the following hormones with their potential effects of over secretion:

Epinephrine and Norepinephrine = Hypertension and aggression Epinephrine = Failure to combat with daily life emergency situations Norepinephrine = No specific effect mentioned in the text Neither Epinephrine nor Norepinephrine = No specific effect mentioned in the text

Match the following statements with the correct hormone:

This hormone is a more potent stimulator of metabolic activities, bronchial dilation, and increased blood flow to skeletal muscles and muscles of the heart = Epinephrine This hormone has more influence on peripheral vasoconstriction, resulting in a rise in blood pressure = Norepinephrine This hormone is produced by the adrenal medulla under the influence of the sympathetic nervous system = Both Epinephrine and Norepinephrine This hormone is produced by the adrenal cortex = Neither Epinephrine nor Norepinephrine

What hormones are produced by the adrenal medulla under the influence of the sympathetic nervous system?

Epinephrine and norepinephrine.

What effect do epinephrine and norepinephrine have on the body's response to stress?

They both exert the same effect in different ways, resulting in a synergistic effect.

Where are epinephrine and norepinephrine produced?

They are produced by the adrenal medulla.

Match the following conditions with their corresponding effects of hormone secretion:

Over secretion of hormones = Hypertension and aggressive behaviour Under secretion of hormones = Failure to combat with emergency situation

Match the following under or over secretions with their potential outcomes:

Over secretion of hormones = Hypertension and aggressive behaviour Under secretion of hormones = Failure to combat with emergency situation

Match the following effects with the corresponding hormone secretion conditions:

Hypertension and aggressive behaviour = Over secretion of hormones Failure to combat with emergency situation = Under secretion of hormones

Match the following hormone conditions with their potential effects:

Over secretion = Hypertension and aggressive behavior Under secretion = Failure to combat with emergency situation

Match the following hormone effects with the correct conditions of secretion:

Hypertension and aggressive behavior = Over secretion Failure to combat with emergency situation = Under secretion

Match the following hormone effects with their corresponding conditions of secretion:

Causes hypertension and aggressive behaviour during routine life = Over secretion Causes failure to combat with emergency situation = Under secretion

Which hormones are responsible for causing hypertension and aggressive behavior?

Epinephrine and norepinephrine

What are the consequences of under secretion of these hormones?

Failure to combat with emergency situations

Which system is responsible for the release of epinephrine and norepinephrine?

Sympathetic nervous system
