The autonomic nervous system was discussed in lesson 6 of this subcourse. In
that lesson, you learned of the sympathetic division of this nervous system. Specifically,
it was stated that the sympathetic nervous system is frequently referred to as the
adrenergic nervous system because of its transmitter epinephrine that is more
commonly known by its trade name, "Adrenalin." The adrenergic nervous system
prepares the body for stress situations. Stimulation of the adrenergic nervous system
has the general effect of expending energy. When a person is scared, this system
prepares the body for the fight or flight response.
