Both the nervous system and the endocrine system work in tandem to help your lungs to breathe, heart to beat, and brain to make decisions. The endocrine system functions using chemical responses called hormones to affect the physiological activity within your body. Two of these glands which influence our behaviors on a daily basis are known as the Adrenal gland, which is the gland which secretes when the body is under stress, causing what is known as a "fight or flight" response. This is caused by the hormones epinephrine and norepinephrine and is generally exhibited by anxiety, or fear. This response can be triggered by many things, amusement park rides, phobias such as snakes or spiders, or being approached
